Virginia will get its first visit from a 2020 contender next week.

A source with the campaign tell us former Texas Representative Beto O’Rourke will be visiting a number of cities on Tuesday and Wednesday. 

With nearly 20 Democratic primary contenders, this is expected to be the first of many visits this election cycle.

A member of O’Rourke’s campaign says the declared candidate will host meet and greets, town halls and other events in Norfolk, Hampton, Williamsburg, Henrico, Charlottesville, Fredericksburg, Alexandria, as well as Prince William and Fairfax Counties. 

We are still learning more details about the events and where they will be held.
