It’s not every day that a presidential candidate campaigns in Southeast Texas. That’s why seniors Rylan Breaux and Vinny Hale took advantage of Donald Trump’s appearance in Beaumont last weekend and got tickets immediately.

“When I first heard that Donald Trump was coming to Beaumont, I was honestly pretty shocked,” Breaux said. “You hear of these major candidates traveling across the country to large bustling cities to draw in huge crowds, but we are talking about Beaumont. I was also very excited. The first thing that I did was get tickets. They were free so I just went ahead and got them before I was sure that I was even able to go.”

Hale said he took extra precautions to make sure he and his two friends were one of the first in line to get into Ford Arena and succeeded by waking up extremely early that morning.

“We were actually about 20th in line with cars and once they opened the gate for cars to enter, Rylan and I hopped out of the car and sprinted about 600 yards across a parking lot and empty field to be first at the door,” Hale said. “I think this upset some of the people in cars who drove in and parked, but it was well worth the dirty looks.”

As a conservative Republication, Breaux said he enjoyed the speech and he believed Trump brought out great points.

“Ideologically, we align on most topics,” Breaux said. “His stances on many topics are ones that I feel strongly about. Things such as illegal immigration, the economy, foreign policy, and the second amendment are things that Trump has been outspoken about that I agree with. My main issue with Trump is the fact that he has no filter on his mouth and says anything. In a sense we need this because political correctness has taken over our country in a terrible way, but he needs to know when to use it and when not to use it.”

Not only did Hale and Breaux sit close to Trump, but they also got autographs, handshakes, and even a selfie taken with the presidential candidate.

“Meeting Trump was great,” Breaux said. “Even if people don’t want him to be president, it is still Donald Trump. It was really fun getting a selfie with him and getting his autograph.”
