KENT, Ohio (WKBN) – Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke will be coming to Kent State University next week.
The Democrat will be speaking on campus September 25.
The event starts at 6 p.m. on Risman Plaza.
Most recently, O’Rourke made news for a memorable line during a presidential debate: “Hell yes, we’re gonna take your AR-15, your AK-47, and we’re not going to allow it to be used against your fellow Americans anymore.”
He has endorsed a mandatory federal buyback of assault weapons since a gunman opened fire at a Walmart in his native El Paso, killing 22 people.
