The bottles, which also had O’Rourke’s name on them, contained a piece of paper with statistics about fentanyl and the number of Americans that die from overdoses, according to Madlin Mekelburg of the Austin American-Statesman, who tweeted photos of the bottles at the Wednesday night event.

This is a developing story that will be updated as more information becomes available.
