The wife of former Vice President Joe Biden will travel to El Paso, Dallas and Houston on Tuesday for get-out-the-vote rallies, marking the start of early voting in Texas.
In El Paso, Jill Biden will be joined by former Congressman Beto O’Rourke and Congresswoman Veronica Escobar (D-El Paso).
In Dallas, she will be joined by Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Dallas), Congressman Marc Veasey (D-Fort Worth), Congressman Colin Allred (D-Dallas), and Congressional Candidate Candace Valenzuela.
In Houston, Jill Biden will be joined by Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Houston), Congressman Al Green (D-Houston), Congresswoman Sylvia Garcia (D-Houston), Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher (D-Houston), Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo and Mayor Sylvester Turner.
Jill Biden’s appearance comes as polling shows President Donald Trump is not guaranteed to win in Texas.
If the election were to be held today, Trump would win in only five of the 22 competitive Texas House districts, which was shown in polling released by Reform Austin last week. Joe Biden would take seven districts. The remainder are a toss-up, with neither candidate having the support of at least 50% of those polled.
Early voting begins Tuesday and ends Oct. 30. Election Day is Nov. 3.
