Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke visited Los Angeles Saturday for a town hall gathering. More than 150 supporters came to see the presidential hopeful.
Before answering questions, O’Rourke delivered a speech on the efforts of young people to make change in their country, from the Greensboro, N.C., sit-ins to March for Our Lives.
"We really like his age; he's a little bit younger," said a part-time student studying business administration/human resources at Cal Poly Pomona. "We really appreciate how he's tailoring his candidacy more toward modern times."
The speech was held at La Casa del Mexicano, a Mexican cultural center in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights. La Casa was also the center of an environmental justice debate with the planned construction of a Verizon cell tower on the property, according to the Los Angeles Times.
This was O'Rourke's third campaign stop in California. According to RealClearPolitics, fewer than 3 percent of California primary voters support O'Rourke for president.
