TEXAS: Beto O’Rourke Comes To Mayor Pete’s Defense After Christian Hecklers Disrupt Fundraiser [VIDEO]

ABC News reports:

Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg was heckled by protesters at an event in Texas Friday night, but one of his fellow Democratic challengers was happy to immediately come to his defense.

The protesters yelled, “Marriage is between a man and a woman,” and, “Repent,” according to CNN reporter DJ Judd, who was in the audience. Judd also filmed footage of a woman being ushered out of the venue for making anti-abortion comments.

Fellow presidential candidate, former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, quickly came to his opponent’s defense on Twitter. “Texans don’t stand for this kind of homophobia and hatred,” O’Rourke wrote. “Mayor Pete, we are grateful you came to Texas and hope to see you and Chasten back again soon.”
