Number of counties in which David Alameel, the 2014 Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate, failed to receive at least 20% of the vote.

U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-El Paso), the Democratic nominee challenging U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R), recently completed a rare quest. He became the third statewide candidate in recent memory to hold at least one campaign event in each of the state’s 254 counties, joining 2014 Libertarian GOV nominee Kathie Glass and 1990 Democratic AG candidate John Odam.

The last Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate received less than 20% of the vote in 62% of the counties O’Rourke has spent time visiting.
