Beto O'Rourke 2 hours ago:   Thursday Jul 16 - 9:59am Let him know how you feel - tell him you want him to focus on saving the lives of our fellow Texans. We need a stay at home order or we will only see more cases, more hospitalizations and more deaths. Here’s his number: 512-463-2000 Beto O'Rourke 2 hours ago:   Thursday Jul 16 - 9:57am People are dying of covid in record numbers in Texas. It is disproportionately killing Latinos & African Americans. Gov. Abbott could issue a stay at home order, he could give local leaders in places like Houston, Dallas & the RGV the authority to save lives. He chooses not to. Beto O'Rourke 14 hours ago:   Wednesday Jul 15 - 9:43pm RT @ASlavitt: Trump is trying to reduce testing to hide the numbers. Now he is hiding hospitalization counts.

Their denial of mail-in voting expansion & failure to require masks at polling places left many Texans unable to cast their ballot. https://t.co/e0Ymgllaud Beto O'Rourke 1 day ago:   Wednesday Jul 15 - 11:18am Big thanks to the Democrats on yesterday’s ballot.
