Beto O’Rourke caused a dramatic scene when he angrily confronted Gov. Greg Abbott at his the governor’s news conference about the school shooting, yelling, “This is on you.”
O’Rourke, who is running for governor against Abbott, moved to the third row of the Uvalde High School auditorium about 15 minutes after the governor began speaking to the media alongside other state and local leaders onstage.
When Abbott concluded his comments and introduced Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, O’Rourke rose and walked to the stage and spoke directly to Abbott.
“You are doing nothing,” O’Rourke said.
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz told him, “Sit down and don’t play this stunt.” Patrick told O’Rourke he was “Out of line and an embarrassment.” And Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin gave the most colorful response.
Abbott has relentlessly attacked O’Rourke over that idea in the current race.
Deborah Bond, an activist from San Antonio whose extended family has kids in the school district, said she supported O’Rourke’s comments.
