Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke is canceling his campaign stop in Central City this weekend, along with a series of other Iowa visits.
O’Rourke was scheduled to attend the 1st District Democrats Passport to Victory event at the Lynn Dunn Memorial Building in Central City on Saturday.
He has announced that instead he will remain in El Paso, Texas, through the weekend as his hometown continues to cope with a mass shooting that killed 22 people. The former congressman hasn’t hinted when he’ll resume campaigning, saying he’s not thinking of politics right now.
