Beto O'Rourke to Participate in CNN Town Hall

Democratic Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke will participate in a town hall with CNN next week.

On Thursday, October 18th, O’Rourke will participate in a one-hour town hall event with CNN correspondent Dana Bash. The event was originally planned to include two of the candidates in the race - O’Rourke and Republican Ted Cruz - although, CNN officials say Cruz declined his invitation, according to the Fort Worth Star Telegram. Libertarian Neal Dikeman was not invited.

While this event will not include all three candidates, Cruz and O’Rourke are expected to meet for a second debate later this month.
