I am traveling across Texas to recognize, galvanize, and mobilize rural Texans across the state to vote RED! I started my morning in Woodville before heading over to Colmesneil for a delicious breakfast at the Bulldog Country Cafe. It was great visiting with so many people from the community.
The Bus Tour Continues in East Texas
We then headed to Wooden Pallets Ltd. in Silsbee, where I got a tour of the facility and spoke with over 100 of their employees. They asked some great questions. I have always enjoyed learning how products are made and I have learned a lot about the lumber business while visiting East Texas.
I needed a quick caffeine break and stumbled upon a great cafe in Lumberton, Hard Bean Coffee. Everywhere I went, people came up and said, “I just voted for you!”
Next, we headed over to Orange for lunch at the Old Orange Cafe. I was able to shake the hand of everyone at the restaurant and several people told me they had already voted for me!
After lunch, we made a pit stop at the Dairy Queen in Vidor. My team loves their sweets and DQ’s Blizzards are no exception!
We then drove over to Beaumont, where I held my press conference at the Spindletop Gladys City — Boomtown Museum. I had a great time with a family I met showing their kids around the museum…we watched the gusher go off together. I want one of those in my backyard but my wife, Jan, would probably disagree!
We stopped in Hankamer for a little time off the bus and to discuss the tour and the upcoming days with my team.
I started my tour at the Alamo and ended it at San Jacinto. I’m a huge history buff, and I always enjoy it when I get to visit monuments and museums around Texas (and the world) and reflect on the rich history of our country and state. This bus tour has allowed me to do just that.
Our last stop was in Baytown at Floyds Mont Belvieu. It was a fantastic tour through East Texas. I met so many wonderful people and ate some delicious food along the way. It has been a privilege to visit communities all across Texas and learn more about our beautiful state.
