Daniel Rodrigue, Brookhaven Campus journalism professor and faculty adviser, faced one of the most difficult experiences that anyone can imagine. On Halloween night, and the day of his birthday, Rodrigue was enjoying a movie night after trick-or-treating with his family, when suddenly he smelled smoke.

It was 8:45 p.m. when he asked his young son if he also smelled smoke. He said “no” and kept watching the movie.

Rodrigue checked the kitchen and the bathroom where candles were lit. A little later, a neighbor knocked his door and warned him that smoke was coming out of his garage.

“When we were here in 2018, this place was not full. There were not students waiting outside the door who could not get in,” Texas gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke said. “And here it’s what’s different. It’s the same candidate, so I know it’s not about me. I’m in the same political party, I know it’s not about the party. And by the way, Republican, Democrat, Independent, no me importa. The differences between us do not matter.”

In an auditorium full of emotions and people, O’Rourke visited Dallas College at the El Centro Campus on Oct. 3. The Democrat challenging Republican incumbent Greg Abbott was invited by the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) club.
