Joe Biden's campaign is naming its first hires for the general election in Texas, where polls continue to show a close contest between the presumptive Democratic nominee and President Donald Trump.
Biden's state director will be Rebecca Acua, a veteran of the Texas Capitol and Democratic campaigns in the state.
The team also includes two advisers who were involved early with Biden's campaign in Texas during the primary.
Mike Collier, the 2018 nominee for lieutenant governor, will serve as senior adviser, while Jane Hamilton, Biden's Texas state director during the primary, has been named strategic adviser.
In addition to announcing the Texas hires Monday, Biden's campaign is launching digital ads to mark the one-year anniversary of the El Paso shooting.
