Texas, a once reliably Republican state, is seeing enormous voter turnout in the 2020 election, a potentially promising sign for Democrats. MJ Hegar, the Democratic candidate for Senate in Texas, is in a close race with Republican John Cornyn, and on Thursday she shared a video from Billie Eilish asking all eligible Texans to cast their vote.
"Early voting ends on Friday and Election Day is next Tuesday," Eilish says in the video, so if everyone makes their voices heard we can win... What happens in Texas could determine our country's future. So, we are counting on you. Remember, you have the power, but only if you use it. Please vote."
Eilish hasn't been shy about her support for Democrats in the 2020 election. She performed "my future" at the 2020 Democratic National Convention, and her speech, in which she said President Trump was "destroying our country and everything we care about," was quoted in a leaked Trump administration document collecting celebrities to ask to participate in a COVID ad campaign.
