Beto O'Rourke has canceled campaign appearances in Iowa, deciding to remain in his hometown of El Paso, Texas, as it grieves a mass shooting rather than participate in what is considered a key campaign opportunity at the Iowa State Fair. At least 22 people were killed at an El Paso Walmart Saturday by a shooter who appeared to be motivated by anti-immigrant anger. The incident -- and another mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio, the next day -- have put the issue of gun control at the top of the agenda for Democratic presidential candidates
Not sure how we would know the difference, but there you go. You tables will be clear of Beto standing on them at least in the near future.
