WACO, Texas — Texas Democratic candidate Beto O'Rourke visited Waco on Saturday evening as part of his "Drive for Texas" campaign.

More than 500 people were in attendance at the event at Da Shack Farmer's Market on Houston Drive.

O'Rourke discussed various topics such as the Uvalde massacre and universal background checks for firearms, teacher pay, women's rights and climate change.

O'Rourke spoke with 25 News on why he continues to visit the city of Waco.

"I've been coming to Waco for 5 years now, everyone is so warm, so welcoming, so kind to us," the gubernatorial candidate said. "Democrats for sure but a lot of republicans here tonight, a lot of Independents... it is people from the community who want to do better by and for everyone."

Beto will continue his "Drive for Texas" Campaign in the next coming weeks.
