American politics often comes under fire from constituents for being overly partisan in nature.

But one canceled flight to Washington, D.C., and a Facebook live sought to change that.

Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas), 39, and Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas), 44, got the idea for a “bipartisan road trip” — also affectionately called a “cross country town hall” — after Hurd’s flight to the nation’s capital was canceled due to a snow storm.

“And Beto suggested, why don’t we just drive?” he told San Antonio-based KABB-TV.

The pair spent time the live-streamed parts of their 1,600-mile trip, discussing policy and colleagues, and answering questions from the audience.

They also ate breakfast tacos together and took food suggestions from the audience. Naturally, someone suggested they find a Whataburger.

More of their road trip adventures can be viewed on Facebook:
