Morning Joe Parrots Biden Campaign: 'Keep an Eye on Texas'

November 3rd, 2020 11:25 AM

Yeah, and Trump might carry New Jersey!

In every election cycle, there's always a state that's been reliably in one party's column for years that the other party talks up the possibility of flipping. For years, Republicans would float their chance to carry the Garden State—but that hope never came to fruition

This time, it's the Biden campaign, with a helping hand from the liberal media, that is suggesting Joe just might carry Texas. Check out the mash-up for a concoction of comments by Morning Joe panelists today. Both in their own right, and passing along "insider" info from the Biden campaign, the theme is that Texas might go blue tonight.


This is quite different from two years ago, when they panicked Beto O'Rourke would lose in Texas by ten points. 

Anything's possible, I suppose. But as someone who lived in Texas for most of the last decade, I'd wager a pound of brisket from the Hard Eight BBQ in Stephenville that it's not gonna happen!
