Just six people showed up at the airport in Beaumont, Texas on Wednesday to catch a glimpse of Hillary Clinton, but she did not stop to say hello or take any pictures.
Local CBS affiliate KFDM reported that security was tight at the small regional airport and caught some footage of Clinton's Secret Service team escorting her from her private plane to her waiting caravan. She did not say hello or take any pictures with the small crowd. Clinton was in the small southern Texas town for a private fundraiser.
Admission into the fundraiser started at $1,000 and if attendees wanted to get a picture with the presidential candidate, the price was $2,700.
“People get to see the candidates a little closer than normal, makes a better experience, I guess. Makes more people want to vote too, that would be a good thing,” local man David Wright said.
At Clinton's private fundraiser, most of the attendees were Pakistani and were voicing public support for her. One attendee said that they liked that Clinton was standing up against Islamophobia.
Outside of the fundraiser, there was a small group of people protesting the former secretary of state's visit, one of whom wore a t-shirt calling her a crook and a murderer.
Clinton's visit comes as a new poll out of New Hampshire shows her down 27 points to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), a Democratic socialist. While Sanders appears in command in New Hampshire, Clinton and Sanders are locked in a tight race in Iowa, where the caucus will take place Feb. 1.
