Texas gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke told reporters Friday that he was “not interested” in President Joe Biden’s help in running for Republican governor Greg Abbott.

Asked whether he would ask Biden for help during his tenure, O’Rourke told reporters on Friday that he did not want Biden or anyone else in Washington to interfere in the campaign. Dallas Morning News.

“I’m not interested in any national politician – outside of Texas – coming to this state to help resolve that outcome,” O’Rourke said. “I think we all want to make sure we work with each other in Texas, listen to each other, and vote.”

“At the moment, no one in Washington can help us with the problems we’re facing,” he said. “It belongs to all of us.”

O’Rourke cited recent congressional and Supreme Court rulings reviewing U.S. election law and the Texas Abortion Act as proof that Texas Democrats need to address this independently.
