“Jenkins attended the Kamala Harris rally in Fort Worth. This comes the same day that the Judge posted on Twitter saying, “Please avoid trick-or-treating this Halloween & find fun family activities with those you live with.
…it’s hypocritical at best for him to attend the rally with Senator Harris. Especially when his orders are directly impacting the lives of the Citizens of Dallas County seven months after the pandemic began.”

“The Kamala Harris event was socially distanced and well run. Everyone wore their masks. I wish Republican events were that focused on protecting participants. On a couple of occasions, I failed to keep people at 6 feet who requested photos at this event. I should not have allowed that.”
