“It’s now time for the House to move forward with impeachment,” O’Rourke said. “The American people are saying that, history calls us to do the right thing, the Constitution mandates this.”
O’Rourke also discussed his visit with the West Chester workers. The facility’s approximately 100 workers are among 49,200 UAW members who went on strike from GM facilities Sept. 16 after the company and union failed to reach an agreement on a new four-year contract.
“I’m struck by their sacrifice and their service to the rest of this country,” O’Rourke said.

Following the West Chester Twp. visit, O’Rourke will travel to Dayton for a Dayton Community Meeting at noon and then to an Ohio State University Town Hall at 4 p.m.

An email from his campaign said O’Rourke “will meet with activists, community leaders, and students to continue to address urgent issues including gun violence, building an economy that works for all, and the need to impeach President Trump and restore moral leadership to the White House.”
