Crowds expected to show up in downtown El Paso in support for Beto

Southwest University Ballpark

Hundreds are expected to gather at El Paso’s downtown ballpark to see if Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke ;has pulled off one of the biggest upsets in Texas politics by unseating Sen. Ted Cruz.

O’Rourke returned to his hometown Monday night, the town that he said has supported and believed in him since the beginning.

“I am so proud of El Paso,” said O’Rourke Monday at his last rally of the campaign.

El Pasoans continued to show their support at the polls, with nearly 140,000 casting early voting ballots. Bucking traditional politics, O’Rourke did not hire a pollster, instead he said he and his campaign believe in the people.

“I think we have every indication that we are going to have a very good day tomorrow,” O’Rourke told reporters on the eve of Election Day.

O’Rourke voted in El Paso Tuesday morning with his wife Amy, their three children in tow.

The “Thank You” party at Southwest University Park brought out loyal supporters and other El Paso leaders.
