Governor of Texas, Greg Abbot, told Donald Trump that the polls are wrong and that there is no way Biden will win Texas. According to Newsweek:
President Donald Trump railed against “suppression polls” showing him either losing or tied with former Vice President Joe Biden in reliably red states, with Trump saying the Texas governor called and assured him Monday he won’t lose.
Trump told rallygoers in Martinsburg, Pennsylvania, Monday that his support of oil, energy companies and fracking will lead him to victory over Biden in the Democratic nominee’s home state—as well as in Texas. Trump said Texas Governor Greg Abbott responded to polls and increasing hype that the state may turn blue by calling and telling him Monday that data is simply wrong.
Biden’s running mate, Kamala Harris, is set to become the highest-profile representative from the Biden campaign to visit the Lone Star State this Friday. This follows several polls which show the Democratic ticket may be in position to win Texas for the first time since 1976. Harris would also become the first Democratic vice presidential candidate to campaign in Texas since 1988, when Texas Sen. Lloyd Bentsen toured his home state while on the ticket with presidential candidate Michael Dukakis.
