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%.
