Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, a Democrat 2020 presidential candidate, visited the College of William and Mary Tuesday for a meet and greet.

Grace Gottschling – The college’s Young Democratic Socialists of America chapter used the appearance to criticize O’Rourke’s stance on fossil fuels and his choice to vote with Republicans to revoke a ban on the export of fossil fuels. The university-recognized student group claimed in its tweet that there are only “11 years left to fix the environment.”

“Nice seeing Robert O’Rourke coming to campus today. Will he explain why he voted with the gop to protect offshore drilling and revoke the ban on fossil fuel exports when we have 11 years left to fix the environment?”   

“Nice seeing Robert O’Rourke coming to campus today,” the group tweeted. “Will he explain why he voted with the GOP to protect offshore drilling and revoke the ban on fossil fuel exports when we have 11 years left to fix the environment? Stay tuned.”
