DALLAS (KXAN) — The Texas Democratic Party, a Presidential candidate, and many candidates for the United States Senate will hold events counter to President Trump’s rally Thursday night at American Airlines Arena in downtown Dallas.

At 2 p.m. in a parking garage across from the arena, the Texas Democratic Party, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, and State Representatives Ramon Romero, Rhetta Bowers, and Jessica Gonzalez held a press conference hoping to contrast the President.

These events come as an ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Trump continues its work in Washington D.C.

Democratic presidential candidate and former El Paso congressman Beto O’Rourke will hold a counter-rally at the Theatre at Grand Prairie. This is the second time O’Rourke held a counter-rally for a Presidential visit to Texas; the first time was in El Paso before O’Rourke announced he was a candidate against Trump.
