Clinton speaks at Beaumont rally

Posted: Updated:

There were a few undecided voters at the Get Out the Vote Rally for 14th Congressional District Candidate, Nick Lampson on Thursday evening and they were there to get more information before they vote. After the rally, voters were pumped to get out and vote. Many Lamar University College students took the opportunity to hear former President Bill Clinton and 14th Congressional District candidate, Nick Lampson speak, to help them make up their minds about who to vote for in this election.

12 News HD spoke with three first time voters who say they were undecided before the rally.

Lamar University student, Erin Wilrich says, "I feel very very confident about my decision. I've been watching both parties and I do feel that he is really putting more emphasis on people in my position and people who are relying on student loans, people who are in school, so I do have more confidence."

Jasmine Reeves says, "I had knowledge of it and after tonight, I have even more knowledge. I just feel really good about all the plans that he has for the Democratic party so if feel confident."

Rowan Waedemon says she was at the rally to gather more information about the congressional candidate, Nick Lampson, "I think it's pretty important and it gives me perspective on people who aren't the presidential candidate on the congressman. I really didn't know anything about that and I feel more confident in voting than I was earlier tonight."

The topic that most concerned these first time voters was education, student loans, and how to pay for their education, so they say they were listening closely tonight. Reeves tells 12 News HD  she is so pumped to vote, that she plans on voting on Friday morning.
