Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) was asked to go to prom by a teenage girl from South Dakota while campaigning in Sioux City, Iowa on Thursday.

“It’s OK if you say no, but will you go to prom with me,” the student, Claire Campbell, asked O’Rourke according to the Des Moines Register.

“As someone who did not go to prom because no one asked me, I’m really touched,” O’Rourke said. “This means more to me than you know.”

“But somebody told me about your sign, so we came up with a counter-proposal,” O’Rourke added before holding up a sign of his own. “Will you caucus for me?”

Unfortunately for O’Rourke, Campbell will not be able to caucus for him in Iowa in 2020 as she lives out of state.
