U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and his Democratic challenger, U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-El Paso, have agreed to three debates before Election Day.

Some conservative fans expressed outrage at Nelson's endorsement of the candidate, with many saying they would boycott his music and concerts.

In the past, Nelson has played private benefit shows supporting individual politicians. "Beto embodies what is special about Texas, an energy and an integrity that is completely genuine". An initial report of Leon Bridges being on the bill is unconfirmed, Nelson's publicist said Wednesday evening. "Long time supporter and listener but don't associate with this man!" Many also pointed out that Willie - who called out the Trump administration for it's draconian immigration policies, supported Obama's presidential bid and smokes a whole lot of fucking weed - hasn't exactly been shy about his left-leaning views.

"If thats (sic) true I'm done after 45 years." another fan commented.

"Like we say in Texas, Now Git", yet another wrote. "You'd have to be a fairly peripheral fan to be surprised by this".

"I am grateful to everyone who has put their life on the line for this country, every member of law enforcement and every one of our first responders", O'Rourke said. "Even though that is NOT my cup of tea, I do love Willie".

Admission is free but requires an RSVP via O'Rourke's website.
