O'Rourke Driving Pickup Across Texas To Highlight Issues With Grid

"Texas gubernatorial candidate Beto O'Rourke (D) will be driving over 2,000 miles across the state over 12 days this month to bring attention to its infrastructure.

O'Rourke's road trip will involve public events across 12 Texas towns and cities, beginning in Odessa on Feb. 4 and ending in Houston on Feb. 15.

"One year after a preventable grid collapse left millions of families without heat, electricity, and running water for days, Texans will be coming together at events across the state to remember what happened, spotlight those who stepped up to serve their communities during the terrifying blackout, and unite around a brighter future for Texas where we finally fix the grid, bring utility costs down, and keep the lights on so this deadly crisis never happens again," O'Rourke's campaign said."
