DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – As the campaign leading up to the 2020 presidential election ramps up, candidates will make their way through Ohio, beginning with a Democratic presidential candidate on Tuesday.
Former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, known for a contentious and close Senate election with incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) before ultimately losing, will be at McKinley United Methodist Church on Hawthorn Street in Dayton on Tuesday from 12 pm to 2 pm.
“I am traveling to towns and cities across America to introduce myself and hear from people like you about the ways we can move this country forward,” Rep. O’Rouke says on his website.

Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA.)
In 2018, Rep. O’Rourke challenged former Republican presidential candidate and current Senator Ted Cruz in Cruz’s re-election bid. O’Rourke lost by less than three percent.
