Beto O’Rourke spoke during the event in Acres Homes days after Gov. Greg Abbott’s visit to the Houston area.
HOUSTON — Civic duty followed church services for hundreds of Houstonians on Sunday.
“Go cast your vote,” one volunteer said. “It doesn’t matter who for, just go vote.”
“We’ve been doing this for over 15 years,” Dixon said. “We’ve got pastors and churches and community leaders all out uniting because we know this is a critical election.”
The event was billed as non-partisan but prominent Democrats, including gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke, took to the stage.
“This is the one and only Sunday for early voting,” O’Rourke said. “And to be with all these extraordinary leaders and people in Acres Homes means the world to me.”
O’Rourke spent much of the weekend in the Houston area.
“It’s great to be in the Houston area and Harris County and Fort Bend County,” Abbott said during the event.
The latest polling showed Abbott’s lead is growing but few politicians are resting on their laurels this close to the election — with five days of early voting yet to come.
