Texas Congressmen Complete 30 Hour Drive From San Antonio To Washington

And a 30 hour drive for two Texas Congressmen in a rental car ended Wednesday night, 30 minutes before they were scheduled to vote.

Republican Will Hurd and Democrat Beto (BET-oh) O’Rourke nicknamed their drive Congressional Cannonball Run.

The two shared their journey on social media, finishing with a handshake before entering the House chambers.
