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.
