Gardner, please include the below from me. Appreciate it.
The Senator has been honored to visit the Rio Grande Valley, one specific region in the state, for 4 events since taking office, and looks forward to more. Since being sworn in, he has traveled to 38 Texas cities for 118 events.

Subject: RE: Update
Can you provide detail on the valley part?
Of course, below – and I made a typo – it's 3 events– and please make the point about all of the events across the state to make it a fair comparison. Thanks!
September 3, 2013
McAllen – DPS Border tour
McAllen – Roundtable with landowners to discuss border/immigration policy
Mission – Rio Grande Partnership lunch
I think the fair comparison to make is that the Senator has been to Iowa 4 times and travels back to Texas almost every weekend, where he's done 118 events in 38 Texas cities since being sworn in. And, yes, he's specifically done 3 events in the Rio Grande Valley and looks forward to doing more.
