ABILENE, TX. — Congressman from El Paso, Beto O'Rourke, made his way back to west Texas.

A recent poll conducted by Quinnipiac University, shows how O'Rourke is catching up to senate incumbent, Ted Cruz.

"The polling shows us within as close as two points...everything tells us that we can win this election over the next 96 days," says O'Rourke.

The Paramount Theatre in Abilene was a full house Thursday afternoon.

People from all over the Big Country gathered for a town hall with congressman O'Rourke and various candidates running for the November elections.

"Something that comes to mind is the common decency that the people of Abilene have. Republicans, democrats, independents," says O'Rourke.

The determination from the younger populations to speak up have not only caught the eye of the world, but to O'Rourke as well.

"Young people are leading today and I'm very grateful for the opportunity to follow their lead and be part of something really historic that they're helping to create in Texas right now."

Soon after Abilene's town hall, O'Rourke was on the road again heading to San Angelo Thursday night.
