TAMPA, Fla. — Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O'Rourke was in Tampa Monday.
- Beto O'Rourke met with veterans in Tampa
- Says not enough care is given to veterans
- Says country needs to prioritize care for PTSD
O'Rourke hosted a veterans round table at Brew Bus Brewing on North Florida Avenue Monday morning.
The former Texas congressman met with veterans, families and advocates.
He says the reason for the event is to learn more about the challenges veterans and their families face in the community.
O'Rourke says the care veterans receive when they return home is not enough.
"We have to do more for the veterans that serve this country," said O'Rourke. "We'll spare no expense, we will bare any burden, to make sure that we meet every single returning veteran with the care and the investment that they deserve."
O'Rourke also said this country needs to prioritize care for PTSD, no matter when a veteran served.
With the Interstate 4 corridor being key when it comes to the presidential race, expect to see more Democratic candidates during the coming months.
