Jeremy Bird, senior advisor to Battleground Texas, the newly-minted group dedicated to turning Texas blue, appeared on ‘The Colbert Report’ last night to speak about this goal. “What we’re gonna do is bring the fight to Texas and make it a battleground state so that anybody who wants to be our commander in chief, they have to fight for Texas,” said Bird, former field director for the Obama campaign. These sentiments led Colbert to retort, “If you do that, that will upset the natural order of things.” Texas, Bird continued, is becoming more diverse, and Battleground Texas plans on registering new voters and mobilizing existing ones on election day. “This definitely is more than just bluster,” he said.
