KEENE, N.H. (AP) — Beto O'Rourke was back at Keene State College, but the large crowd that flocked to see him six months ago was not.
Far removed from the whirlwind opening days of his presidential campaign, the former Texas congressman faced a far smaller, quieter gathering. An attempted "Beto! Beto!" chant fizzled, and when an elderly voter declared that O'Rourke was "so clear and consistent on what the world needs," the candidate responded, "Could you travel with us to every campaign stop and say what you just said?"
