Beto O’Rourke Doesn’t Want Biden Help In Governor’s Campaign – It’s About Texas

Texas gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke told CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday that he doesn’t want President Joe Biden to campaign for him because it isn’t about “someone from outside our state.”

Anchor Dana Bash said: “You campaigned for Joe Biden in 2020 after your presidential election came to an end. A recent poll shows that only 35% of Texans approve of his performance. Would you like the president to go campaign with you? feed?”

O’Rourke said, “This Texas campaign is not going to be about Joe Biden. It’s not about Donald Trump. It’s not about anyone from outside our state. This is about the people of Texas and what the people of Texas want. I did you say they want the big things like jobs, good schools and making sure everyone can see a doctor but they also want some confidence in their government we had a power outage here in this state this year although we are the energy capital of North America – millions without power, hundreds who sadly died in that disaster, and even after. Our governor has done nothing to protect this electrical grid, and you see electricity and natural gas prices in Texas continue to rise as “The taxpayers are paying for the damage done by this governor. People in this state want change, and they’re focused on what’s happening here in Texas, not what’s happening in the rest of the country.”

Bash asked, “Does that mean you’d rather he not come, based on what you just said?”

O’Rourke said, “It means I’m focused on Texas and my fellow Texans. Those Texans – those are the most important people. There is no other politician or person outside the state who can help change the course of these elections for better or for worse. That’s why I travel to every part of this state, to make sure that no one is written off and no one is taken for granted and that we keep the focus on Texas.”
