Donkey Pox: The Disease Destroying America – Day 9 on the Road!

I am traveling across Texas to recognize, galvanize, and mobilize rural Texans across the state to vote RED! I started day nine on the road this morning at the popular breakfast spot, Jucy’s Hamburgers, in Marshall. I spoke with several excited county officials and precinct chairs who are looking forward to the elections in November. They reiterated how important it is to get everyone out to the polls this fall.

Next, Senator Hughes and I stopped at Robroy Industries Raceway Division in Gilmer. I have been stopping at several different types of businesses across the state, and almost every business has been a leader in its field. Businesses come to Texas because we give them the tools to thrive economically.

Then, we made our way to Linden, Texas for lunch at Uncle Juan’s Mexican Restaurant, a local Tex-Mex favorite. It was a PACKED house. The people of Cass County are enthusiastic and adamant in their belief that Texas must remain red.

I got a kick out of this gentleman’s hat, which said, “Donkey Pox: The Disease Destroying America!”

In Cass Co. I was able to get a photo op with the oldest continually operating courthouse in the Lone Star State. A truly beautiful and important building.

Next, my team and I headed over to Texarkana for a press conference where I met with the County Judge, Appeals Court Justices, and Sheriff. I was lucky enough to get to tour the famous and historic Perot Theater shortly after. Constructed in 1924, this theater is a work of art and was named the most beautifully designed theatre in the state back in 2018.

After, we stopped in Red River County, in Clarksville. County Judge Williamson showed me the courthouse annex and introduced me to everyone.


Our last stop of the day was in the iconic Paris, Texas. We stopped a Capizzi’s for a delicious meal. I had to travel all the way to Paris to enjoy a delicious Italian dinner! Sheriff Scott Cass and I took a photo under the Eiffel Tower, then I had a great conversation with the GOP members of Lamar County. It was another successful day on my bus tour.
