(NewsNation) — Texas gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke was hospitalized for a bacterial infection, sources in O’Rourke’s camp confirmed to NewsNation, but last night was back on the campaign trail via Zoom.

“Everything we could possibly care about is on the line right now,” O’Rourke said Monday night.

O’Rourke held a campaign event Monday night with Blacks and Latinos, including actress Eva Longoria.

The Zoom events came after a brief stint in a San Antonio hospital.
