Former Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who’s running for governor of Texas, said Sunday that his campaign is not going to be about Joe Biden” as he blasted the president’s lack of “urgency” on immigration.
During an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” O’Rourke was asked by host Dana Bash if he would invite the president to Texas to stump for him despite his poor poll numbers.
“This campaign in Texas is not going to be about Joe Biden. It’s not going to be about Donald Trump. It’s not going to be about anyone from outside of our state,” O’Rourke said.
“This is going to be about the people of Texas and what the people of Texas want. And I have told you, they want the big things, like jobs, great schools, and making sure everyone can see a doctor. But they also want to see some competence in their government.” he added.
