The state of Texas reported on Friday that more than 9 million people have already voted so far, surpassing the total vote count from the last presidential election in 2016.
Yesterday vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris had a day-long campaign run through Texas that took her to Fort Worth, McAllen, and Houston.
Harris spoke for about half an hour in at First Saint John Cathedral in Fort Worth to a predominately Black, socially distanced and seated crowd during the first stop of a daylong tour of Texas just four days before Election Day. Her presence itself was strange for a state that is noncompetitive in presidential races. Her message: The Democratic presidential ticket isn’t ceding Texas to the GOP this year. For the first time in decades, Republican dominance here could be at risk, at least that what the Democrats and the mainstream media are saying.
Democrats have asked Biden to be more aggressive here. In addition to Harris’ visit, the campaign planned a multicity surrogate bus tour across Texas. In addition, national super PACs and billionaire Michael Bloomberg have poured money into the state at the 11th hour, supporting not only Biden’s presidential bid but down-ballot efforts to flip the congressional districts and gain control of the state House.
“They know when we vote, things change,” Harris said in closing in Fort Worth. “They know when we vote, we win.”
In the real world, the Dems have no chance in Texas and Kamala felt that on her own skin.
After one of the rallies, Trump supporters gave Kamala an escort from town.

Local Democrats said they were forced to pull the plug on a gathering scheduled to take place in Pflugerville – a small city about 17 miles north of Austin – due to “security reasons”.
It came as a vice-presidential candidate, senator Kamala Harris, completed a whistle-stop three-city tour of the Lone Star state in a last-minute bid for votes.
But local reports from Texas suggests otherwise:
ICYMI: The Biden bus tour canceled the rest of its Texas tour because more Trump supporters showed up than Biden supporters- not harassment. They canceled Abilene, Amarillo, Lubbock, Port Arthur, Houston, Laredo they had 14 stops!!! They got shut out EVERYWHERE!!
