O’Rourke’s campaign website lists him holding a rally at Clemson University on Sunday evening.
He drew national attention in his failed run for United States Senate against incumbent Texas Senator Ted Cruz in 2018. O’Rourke is part of a large field of candidates seeking the Democratic nomination to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020.
