Democratic congressional candidate M.J. Hegar says her opponent, Republican Rep. John Carter, hasn’t held a town hall meeting with constituents in five years. The two are competing to represent Texas’ 31st congressional district, in central Texas. Is that a fact? Gardner Selby of the PolitiFact Texas fact-checking team has the answer.

Hegar made the claim during an interview on the Spectrum News program, “Capital Tonight.”

“You know, I just think that he hasn’t had a town hall in five years, and he’s kind of acting as if he wants to retire. And I think if that’s the case, then he should retire and step aside, and let somebody do the hard work,” Hegar said.
