Texas is increasingly looking like a battleground state, and the Joe Biden campaign is sending some attention that way. The campaign announced six hires in Texas, including state director Rebecca Acuña and deputy state director Jennifer Longoria.
The campaign is also launching digital ads in English and Spanish, commemorating the anniversary of the mass shooting in El Paso. That comes weeks after Biden’s first television ad in Texas, which had a relatively modest buy but should help keep the Trump campaign wasting money in its bid to shore up a lead in a state that shouldn’t even be a contest. The presidential race isn’t the only sign of trouble for Republicans in Texas, either.
