Beto O’Rourke will be on CNN for a nationally televised town tonight, appearing without opponent Ted Cruz. Just two days earlier, Beto and Cruz faced off in a local debate. CNN originally intended the town hall to involve both candidates, but now Beto will be on CNN by himself.
CNN had originally offered the town hall to both candidates, but Cruz declined the offer. Cruz later contacted CNN and said he would agree to the event if it was a debate instead of a town hall. O’Rourke’s campaign did not agree to the change in terms.
The event starts at 7pm Eastern. I’ll add an embedded live stream to this post if a bootleg appears on YouTube. In the meantime you can watch on Hulu, Sling, or at CNN’s website, the last of which might require a cable system login.
