Biden and Trump are in a closely fought race in what has been a Republican stronghold: Texas.
For years, Democrats have been watching Texas demographics — it has growing populations of Latinos, young people and ex-Californians — and pining for the election cycle when it would be in play.
Though Trump won the state comfortably in 2016, former Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke gave Republican Sen. Ted Cruz a scare two years ago, and Democrats have used that race to try to build an organization that could swing the state blue. Sensing an opportunity, Biden has begun airing advertisements in Texas as coronavirus cases surge in the state.
