Texas Campaign Events | Speeches, Interviews, Town Halls
Beto O'Rourke sat down with Chuck Todd on Meet the Press to discusses his gun reform proposals, insisting that "there is support beyond the Democratic Party" for gun legislation. O'Rourke also discussed how he felt he performed at the most recent Democratic debate and where he thinks the state of the primary race is a few months before the first voters head to the primaries in early 2020.
Elizabeth Warren sat down with ABC News Correspondent Tom Llamas and a number of other commentators to discuss her performance in the third Democratic Presidential debate and how she feels she separated herself from the other nine candidates sharing the stage with her. Warren said she is grateful for the debates because they are "a terrific opportunity, these debates, for each one of us on that stage to be able to talk with the American people about who we are, and if you give us the chance, where we want to lead this country. All I hope for is that I was as clear as I could be."
Beto O'Rourke spoke with ABC News Correspondent Tom Llamas after the third Democratic Presidential debate where he was asked about a notable moment during the debate when O'Rourke said "hell yes" when asked by the moderators if he was willing to "take away" Americans assault weapons. O'Rourke doubled down during his interview, saying that he has spoken with many gun owners who told him they "would willingly give that weapon up" because they "don't need it."
Kamala Harris sat down with ABC News Correspondent Tom Llamas and a number of other commentators to discuss the third Democratic Presidential debate and how she thinks the evening went. Harris was also asked again about her record as California's Attorney General and defended her tenure there, saying she has nothing to apologize for because she became a prosecutor because she has "a very strong and natural desire to want to protect people. In particular our most vulnerable. A large part of my career as a courtroom prosecutor was handling cases that affected crimes against women and children,"
Pete Buttigieg sat down with ABC News Correspondent Tom Llamas and a number of other commentators to discuss his performance at the third Democratic Presidential debate. Buttigieg claimed that he's the most electable candidate because he doesn't come from D.C. and represents a new generation of politicians. He admitted that we're a very divided country, but promised that he would do whatever it takes to unify the country if he were elected President in 2020.
The third Democratic debate in Houston brought the top ten candidates in the Democratic field onto the same stage for the first time and there was no shortage of lively discussion among the group. The top three candidates - Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders - stuck largely to their typical script, with neither of them delivering any major blows, to the likely relief of Joe Biden. The remaining seven candidates received ample time to deliver their message and answer questions from the moderators, but none appeared to deliver a breakout performance that would shake the top of the field up.
Julian Castro spoke with CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" via satellite from his home town of San Antonio, Texas where he discussed his Presidential candidacy and the news of the week. Castro began his appearance by castigating Donald Trump over his handling of peace talks between the Taliban and the government of Afghanistan, saying that he doesn't "know what to believe anymore" with regards to Trump's words.
Julian Castro spoke with Chuck Todd of NBC's "Meet the Press" where he discussed the need for gun reform one day after yet another mass shooting in the state of Texas. He also insisted that he is in the Presidential primary to win the nomination and explained why he believes that he could “reassemble the Obama coalition and then supercharge that" to win the states needed to get 270 electoral college votes in 2020.
