LOS ANGELES (KXAN) — Texas Senate race candidate Beto O’Rourke is heading to Los Angeles to meet with Ellen DeGeneres, according to a tweet from her show.

“See you September 5th, @BetoORourke,” the comedian and talk show host commented, retweeting an earlier post where she said she would like to meet him following his now-viral response to what he thinks of national anthem demonstrations.

“I can think of nothing more American than to peacefully stand up and take a knee for your rights, anytime, anyplace, anywhere,” O’Rourke said. 

O’Rourke is currently an El Paso congressman who is running against Republican incumbent Ted Cruz.
