Democratic Pres. candidate Beto O’Rourke makes stop in Clemson


CLEMSON, SC (WSPA) – Former Congressman and Democratic candidate for President Beto O’Rourke made a campaign stop at Clemson University, Sunday afternoon.

O’Rourke donned a Clemson hat as he spoke to the crowd and answered questions.

He first spoke about his main platform – immigration – highlighting his opposition to President Trump’s policies at the border.

O’Rourke also touched upon racial injustice issues in America, hoping to reach black voters, who make up a majority of the Democratic primary electorate.

The crowd, mostly made up of Clemson students, say they were impressed with O’Rourke’s focus on uniting the country.

The Clemson stop was the final stop on a three-day tour of South Carolina.

This was his second visit to the state which holds the first Presidential primary in the South.
