Introduce Yourself  - 
 
I live in the Greenville, South Carolina area and have interest and capability to live-stream his rally here on Friday. How should I proceed? A little background about me, I'm a Mississippi native and freelance journalist who has coordinated live-streamed political forums and other events via Google Hangouts on Air.

It hurts my eyes to try and see the speakers. Can y'all position cameras closer to the front?

Tex, I don't think the video or photos can express how incredible the experience felt. I highly recommend it!
