Thank Ya'll Tour for Trump volunteers ends in Pascagoula

PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) - It was a site to see in Pascagoula. The Trump bus has been on the road for a long trip, but this one was fun. Now, it is time to show some love to who made it happen.

"Not only did they vote, they got out, put up signs, knocked on doors, telephone calls," said state campaign chairman Mitch Tyner. "We had groups that came down and helped us in Florida the last few months. We had groups who went to New Hampshire. All from Mississippi."

Tyner and campaign executive Dane Maxwell came up with the Thank Ya'll Tour idea in 2015. Pascagoula was the last of the nine-stop trip.

"This thank you tour is to be sure and get back and say we couldn't have done it without you," said Tyner.

Janet Snowden and Pete Schuman did what they could to get out the message, but they wanted it to go beyond obvious supporters.

"It seems like it did because it seems like there was a lot more people in this country that may have voted for Obama back in '08 that were sick of it at this point and decided that they wanted a big change," said Schuman.

For those volunteers on the front lines, it was an experience they'll never forget.

"When you get a good candidate like Donald Trump, you really go to work for him, because you know if you don't, you're going to keep on having what you have," said volunteer Ann Hebert. "And you don't want that."

For Sandra Lobrano, it was the networking.

"The best part of this campaign experience is I got to meet some incredible people that had the same values that I do and wanted the change that we needed for our country," said Lobrano.

For Mary Kathryne Simonich, it was the end result that counted.

"The most awesome thing that came from all our volunteer coordinated efforts was the election of Donald Trump. What more could I ask?" said Simonich.

The Pascagoula stop also served as a fundraising and campaign kickoff for Pascagoula mayoral candidate Dane Maxwell with Gov. Phil Bryant as a guest speaker.
