With Election Day right around the color, the local government campaigns are in full swing, especially for Texas Democrat Beto O’Rourke. The Senatorial candidate, who by the looks of his even-tempered question-and-answer sessions has quickly risen as a party favorite, has also earned himself a spot in the good graces of the Democratic masses. Even LeBron James has sported a “Beto for Senate” hat.
The latest celebrity to come on board, however, also hails from Texas soil. Fellow Texan Travis Scott. The Astroworld rapper was front and center during O’Rourke’s most recent campaign rally in Houston with a bullhorn at hand. Not only did he show support for the candidate, but he really impressed upon the crowd just how important it is for the youth to go out and vote on Nov. 6.

“I just want to reiterate real quick, all the kids, we need to go out to these polls and attack these polls,” Scott told the tight crowd around him. “When we’re at these concerts, we need to tell our peers to step out and vote, because only us, from 18 and up, you know, we can change the world.”

Former Houston Texans running back Arian Foster was also in the mix to lend his support and encouragement. Afterward, O’Rourke issued his own thank you’s to the two entertainment figures for being there and speaking out on voting.
