Texas gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke told reporters Friday that he is “not interested” in help from President Joe Biden in his run to replace Republican Gov. Greg Abbott.

Regarding whether he would seek the help of Biden during his campaign, O’Rourke told reporters Friday that he did not want Biden or anyone else in Washington, D.C., to get involved in the campaign, according to The Dallas Morning News.

“I’m not interested in any national politician — anyone outside of Texas — coming into this state to help decide the outcome of this,” said O’Rourke. “I think we all want to make sure that we’re working with, listening to and voting with one another here in Texas.”

“No one in Washington, D.C., right now can help us with the challenges that we have,” he also said. “This one is on all of us.”

O’Rourke presented recent decisions from Congress and the Supreme Court regarding the U.S. election overhaul legislation and the Texas abortion law as evidence that Democrats in Texas have to go it on their own.
