Fresh off his big win in Tuesday's New Hampshire Democratic primary, Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders now turns his eyes towards Texas. The Bernie 2020 campaign announced on February 12 it is opening open five offices in key cities across Texas, including Austin, Dallas, Houston, McAllen, and San Antonio.

Four of those five cities also boast CultureMap offices; Sanders knows what's up.

The campaign will open the offices with flair, possibly balloons, hosting office opening events at each location over the coming week. All are free and open to the public.

Sanders is gearing up in preparation for Super Tuesday. According to a release, the campaign just launched a $5.5 million ad campaign across Texas and other Super Tuesday states.

Bernie 2020 has also deployed a major expansion of its Texas organizing operation with staff working in Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth, San Antonio, Austin, El Paso, the Rio Grande Valley, West Texas, and the Texas Panhandle.

Super Tuesday is March 3, less than three weeks away. The release notes that Sanders' support is "surging" in the Lone Star State. According to a new Texas Lyceum poll, Bernie is in a statistical tie for first place amongst the Democratic presidential candidates, and he leads the Democratic field in a matchup against Donald Trump.

He'll also be making an appearance in Mesquite on February 14.
