'White Lives Matter' rally at Texas A&M canceled

The white nationalist rally planned on the campus of Texas A&M University has been canceled, officials confirmed Monday.

University officials said an announcement is coming soon. Local white nationalist Preston Wiginton had planned a White Lives Matter march on the campus for Sept. 11, drawing outrage on social media and among the A&M community. Details of how or why the event has been canceled were not immediately available.

Reached by phone Monday afternoon, Wiginton said he hadn't heard the news. His response: "I guess my lawyers will be suing the state of Texas."

This is a developing story and will be updated.
