Senate candidates Beto O'Rourke, Ted Cruz holding campaign events in Central Texas

Currently in the race to represent Texas in the U.S. Senate, Ted Cruz and Beto O'Rourke will be holding multiple events in Central Texas.

ROUND ROCK, Texas — Hoping to gain your vote to represent Texas in the U.S. Senate, candidates Ted Cruz and Beto O'Rourke will be holding events in Central Texas in the coming days.

Currently seeking reelection, Sen. Ted Cruz was scheduled to be in Round Rock on Saturday for a campaign event with Texas First Lady Cecilia Abbott. However, Cruz's campaign said Thursday night they have canceled the event.

"Due to unforeseen Senate business in Washington surrounding Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation, we must cancel Saturday's event in Round Rock," Cruz's campaign said.

The "Women for Cruz" event will be held at The Rooftop at Urban at 411 West Main Street from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

According to the event page, Abbott will join Cruz for an event "highlighting the record of success and opportunity in Texas thanks to conservative leadership."
