Weather delays led two Texas congressmen to set out on a road trip to Washington, D.C. from Texas and they decided to host town halls online while on the road.

Reps. Beto O'Rourke, a Democrat, and Will Hurd, a Republican, had appeared at events along the southwest border. No staff attended the events with them, so the congressmen filmed and posted the town halls on Periscope and Facebook Live.

O'Rourke's spokesman John Meza said the pair estimated that the trip would take 24 hours, according to CNN.

Hurd began the trip Tuesday morning with a tweet:

The pair is taking turns driving and operating the camera phone. They have read questions from their feeds, including, "Someone wants to talk about child trafficking."

O'Rourke posted a video during the trip.

Texas Sen. John Cornyn called to check on them, according to a tweet from Hurd:

O'Rourke also posted a message on Facebook Live during the trip.
