As voters lined up at polling stations across the state, many clutching umbrellas to ward off rain, the warring campaigns, party organizations and scores of allied groups waged a final effort to get out the vote.
An Election Day web ad released by Texans for Greg Abbott featured the Republican candidate calling on supporters to “cast that vote” and beat back a statewide effort by “Barack Obama operatives” attempting to turn the state blue. “We must work together to ensure we turn out the vote, to ensure that we keep Texas the best state in the United States of America,” Abbott asserted.
Davis, ending her 13-month-long campaign back in her hometown, headlined a morning get-out-the-vote block walk in Fort Worth that paralleled similar events in 900 neighborhoods across the state. "In this race we are choosing not just between two very different candidates but between two very, very different paths,” Davis told supporters.
