Texas, with a republican governor who, according to you, is outright killing his own citizens with his behavior and rhetoric.
Kansas, with a democratic party governor who has been very pro vaccine from the beginning, no bad behavior, no rhetoric, etc...just what you would want from a governor.....has a worse vaccination rate. In fact, it's right there with most red states.
Now....tell me again how what a governor says and how they behave is making a real difference.
Kansas should be a shining example with regards to vaccination rates if the governor is such a big influence on their state's behavior.
