Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) gave the Chair of the Madison, Wisconsin College Democrats, a young woman named Eliana, a cabbage necklace at a campaign event in Madison on Sunday to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. She couldn’t have been happier.

“Happy St. Patrick’s Day,” O’Rourke, who himself is of Irish descent, began his remarks.

“Everything about Eliana, from the moment I met her when we first came to Madison a little more than a month ago, her engagement, her bringing her fellow students into this democracy and the democratic process regardless of their party affiliation or any of small difference,” Rourke began, “Almost everything that I know about her is perfect except for the fact, to the best of my ability, I’m unable to determine whether you’re wearing any green today.”

O’Rourke then held up a cabbage necklace that he was wearing around his neck and said he was passing over the cabbage necklace to Eliana.

“Thank you,” Eliana replied with an ear-to-ear smile as O’Rourke put the cabbage necklace around her neck.
