      @White Jesus ask biden..he just contacted him

    • @superflybry123 enjoy the next few days.

      Nothing can stop what is coming

    • @Christine Sortino dude…. Nobody I know, who knows people, who know others, have died.

      Why did the needle sharing homeless people live? San Francisco still has a problem.

      Use your brain.

      @Art K ‘What’s it like being on the wrong side of history?’ – What’s it like being in the death throes of a failed administration?

      @Art K ‘We found it the day after the 2016 election’ – it’s effects wore off pretty quick though didn’t it – by 2018 republicans were dropping like flies. This time round your about to get a good dose of hydroxychloriquine and disinfectant followed by a good rinse down the political drain.

  2. Texas is tired of Looney Bin Cruz, Abbott and Cornyn.

      @Jack J Biden is a choirboy compared with Trump. He even shows his tax returns. Trump begged for Xi’s help to win the election; that was not Biden. I would say that running $100’s of Billions in trade deficits and at the cost of millions of jobs is selling out America. That’s not Biden, either. That’s Trump.

    • david clark ….. don’t worry they are next in line starting with edwardo cruz who’s cuban descend when he’s around latinos and white when he’s around the GOP hardliners …. technically he can’t be a candidate for president because he was born in Canada but since he’s republican they allowed him to be a candidate anyway (see how hypocrite and corrupt the current trumplicans can be?) and then we’ll go full house cleaning to vote all the dinosaurs out of office.

      A dose of reality in regard to who Trump really is!

  3. Texans: please say NO to Cornhole.

      If you haven’t mailed your mail-in ballot, remember that some states such as Wisconsin won’t count votes received after November 3. Due to post office delays, voters should consider returning their mail-in ballots to an official ballot drop-off location. 44 states across the country are offering in-person early voting, which might be the safest and most reliable method of voting. Find ballot drop box locations, voting information, poll hours, and everything else you need to cast a ballot at Vote.org
      . According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, around 30 million Americans who requested mail-in ballots haven’t returned them. Please copy and share if possible.

  4. I voted for you Ms. HEGAR….Please move GREG ABBOTT TO THE CURB..HE IS NOT GETTING ANY RESPECT FROM ANYONE

  5. She’s a Star Wars fan. My man!

  6. It is likely that the higher turnout is good for Democrats, but we can’t really know. The polls use models of “likely voters” that we know are not going to be valid this time. Take nothing for granted. Get about there and vote. Make sure you are a part of this historic election.

    • I have and I voted against the communist menace.

    • Margaret Wordnerd | October 28, 2020 at 8:18 PM | Reply

      @Ima Doll Local and state elections are important for many reasons. Calling everyone dumb is likely to make them disagree with anything you say, and reject your valid points. Work on your communication skills, please. Trump has popularized rudeness, but that is no reason to copy him.

    • Margaret Wordnerd | October 28, 2020 at 8:19 PM | Reply

      @that one guy Nor do the rural areas speak for all voters. Let’s have everyone’s vote carry equal weight, wouldn’t that be fair?

    • Margaret Wordnerd | October 28, 2020 at 8:22 PM | Reply

      @Ricky Spanish so you’re that worried about Trump’s coziness with Putin, Kim Jong Un, etc.? It worries me as well though I’m more concerned with his fascistic tendencies. That must be what you voted against! A serious menace to our Constitution. ;D

    • Tessmage Tessera | October 28, 2020 at 8:22 PM | Reply

      Historically, higher turnout has ALWAYS been better for Democrats. I can’t think of any exceptions to that rule… except maybe the 1980 election (Reagan vs. Carter).

    I’m in New York but cant help but say LETS GO TEXAS.

      Alexis Andrade Trump gonna take care of you Latin person is not good to trump supporters Biden Harris 2020

      Joseph Melendez Jr, all the way to the WH!

    • @QUID-PRO-QUO J0E,- Sorry pal, the grass is much greener on my side. You folks are entirely to bombastic, extreme, and ignorant for my liking. My dog can give better advise than you sadly. The desperation of Trump supporters stinks as bad as he does.

    • @QUID-PRO-QUO J0E,- Sorry I couldn’t open the links for some reason, i think it might have to do with my newly installed moron, bot filter.

    • @Burningdaylighter LOL

  8. Don’t believe the polls. Don’t get complacent. VOTE regardless
    Country over party 🇺🇲

      @ronny raygunz NO they do not

    • @epic103 never proclaimed I did.

    • @Katherine Raven There is no reason to vote blue . They didn’t do anything for 8 yrs. People are over identity politics and left wing news slander and pushing a already failed socialist agenda.

    • @Katherine Raven Democrats already failed to protect their citizens in riots so you have nothing

    • Margaret Wordnerd | October 28, 2020 at 9:46 PM | Reply

      @Dobs R Ri-i-ight. Just because The Heritage Foundation is a right-wing evangelical trickle-down think tank, they came up with a commie health plan as an April Fool joke, is that it? Republicans pretended the Individual Mandate was an outrage after insisting that without such a mandate insurance companies wouldn’t be able to profit from the ACA. Do your research. Romney didn’t have any complaints about Romneycare until Obama backed the ACA, at which point Romny HAD to criticize his own state’s successful plan because Republicans must march in unison or be shunned from their own party. Amusingly, they call this hive-mind conformity “freedom.”

    Voted early yesterday for the first time since the first Presidential election I could vote in 1980. Voted for Biden/Harris & MJ. In fact voted all for Democrats for many reasons. We need a change! Took me maybe 10 minutes to vote. Very simple process & enjoyable 🙂

  11. I voted today…rented a party bus and took 20 with me. Blue down the line ..FOR AMERICA…vote people take a friend take three..but vote. Our lives are on the line

  13. Even Texas is turning about from the Trump Failure, going to be a big loss next week once everyone votes to Dump the Chump.

  14. I have been saying the entire 4 years texas was going bluec

    MJ I already voted for “You”. Even though there are some issues I don’t agree on in the Democratic Party. I’m putting my trust in you. Asking you to keep it professional & work for the people. Thank you….God bless MJ on her new job working for the people of Texas.

  16. Not a Texan, but have donated to MJ Hegar’s campaign. We need change.

  17. Absolutely, make your vote count. Don’t trust the polls either way, they can be manipulated.

    • Tarrant county in texas has had 48% of all registered voters already do early voting. We only had 57% total turnout in 2018.

      This is nuts.

  18. TEXANS NEED TO CHANGE THINGS….

  19. It took a long time for Latinos in Texas to come to realization… Its never too late… Go out there and Vote Blue

  20. Texas show everyone you’re not gonna take it anymore. You need to be represented better and these politicians in your state should care about your well-being and safety.
