The 2016 Presidential Election brought a strong showing for President Trump in several parts of Texas.  One of the regions with the largest turnouts for Trump, in the state and the nation, was in the Big Country.   

A number of voters at the West Texas Fair and Rodeo last month shared their opinions on the presidential election.  Retiree Jim West described the Democratic candidate, Joe Biden as “crazy as a runover dog”.  And when he was asked who he would vote for, he responded enthusiastically, “Trump!  There ain’t but one candidate as far as I’m concerned.”
