Sen. Kamala Harris, Democratic vice presidential candidate, will make a campaign stop in Texas on Friday—the last day of early voting in the state—according to an email sent to Democratic lawmakers.
Harris will be the highest profile representative of Joe Biden's campaign to come to Texas. It is still unclear where in Texas Harris will visit for the campaign.
Harris had planned a trip earlier this month that she had to cancel due to her communications director testing positive for COVID-19.
Although Biden himself has yet to visit the state, the former vice president's campaign has spent over $6 million on TV ads to run through Election Day in Texas alone, according to the Texas Tribune.
Texas voters have been coming out in droves, poised to break records with 43% of Travis County already casting their ballots as of Thursday.According to the latest poll from the Dallas Morning News and UT Tyler made using a random sample of 1,012 registered voters, Biden leads President Donald Trump in Texas by 3 points at 48% to 45%.

The medical examiner's office is responsible for completing autopsies to identify a cause of death, which it has not been able to do for a week now, a spokesperson told the Austin American-Statesman.
Three registered voters—Linda Durnin, Eric Krohn, and Michael Lovins—who signed the Save Austin Now petition are lead plaintiffs (called relators in legal terms) in identical lawsuits filed with both the Third Court of Appeals and the Texas Supreme Court.
The Original Emergency Petition for Writ of Mandamus filed with the Third Court of Appeals (Case No. 03-21-00075-CV) filed February 16, 2021, asks the court to issue an immediate writ of mandamus that would compel the Austin City Council to adopt the caption contained in the petition as the ballot language. Either that or adopt alternative ballot language that more accurately reflects the primary purpose of the petition.
