Texas gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke (D) shared a photo of him posing with British pop star and actor Harry Styles after the singer gave the politician a shoutout at his concert in Austin. 

The politician shared the picture of the two posing backstage at Styles’s show. 

“Thanks, Harry!” O’Rourke wrote in his tweet.

During his show, Styles, who also starred in the recently released film “Don’t Worry Darling,” was performing his set as a close-up of a “Beto for Texas” sticker on the singer’s guitar appeared on screen. The camera then panned to O’Rourke, who was in attendance at the concert. 

Those in attendance quickly erupted in applause for the former One Direction member’s seeming endorsement of the gubernatorial candidate. 

O’Rourke was also seen at the concert walking around the venue and greeting concertgoers as well. 

Styles has been active in politics, using his platform to endorse President Biden in the 2020 election and help voters register for this year’s midterm elections. 

O’Rourke was shown to be trailing Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) by 8 points in a recent poll as the November general election approaches.
