Matt DeGoode, I noticed that you left early last night with your photographer from the HUGE Lt. Col.Alan West, Republican Chairperson event last night! Am I missing your coverage of several hundred conservative TRUMP supporters? League City was THE place to be last night!

Yes, Carol - you ARE missing the coverage of several hundred conservative TRUMP supporters. Complete with pictures.

The property owners need to provide armed private security for their tenants. Off duty police officers would love the extra money
