The El Paso County Republican Party is hosting a counter-rally in Downtown El Paso Saturday morning, just one block away from Beto O’Rourke’s presidential campaign kick-off.

The “Support Trump rally” will be held from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at 125 West Mills, one block north of O’Rourke’s event.

“He comes from this community but he certainly does not represent this community,” Bob Pena, the Executive Director of the El Paso Republican Party, told KTSM of the democratic candidate. “We have very grave concerns about Beto’s positions.”

Those planning to attend the rally are encouraged to bring small American flags. Additional flags and Make America Great Again hats will also be available at the event.

As KTSM reported, O’Rourke’s rally will be held at 10 a.m. at the intersection of El Paso and Overland streets.
