New York City Mayor Eric Adams, a Democrat, said that he was "deeply contemplating" taking a busload of New Yorkers down to Texas to help campaign against Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican.

Adams made the comments on Tuesday when asked if he was joining any effort to unseat Abbott.

"I already called all of my friends in Texas and told them how to cast their vote," he responded. "And I am deeply contemplating taking a busload of New Yorkers to Texas and do some good old fashioned door knocking, because we have to, for the good of America, we have to get him out of office."

The comments were the latest incident in a series of feudal actions taken between the governors of opposing political parties. Adams has expressed his anger over Abbott sending busloads of migrants to his city from the border state.

"There's nothing more anti-American than what he's displaying right now," said Adams previously.

He also said that some migrants wanted to join their families in other cities and was upset that Abbott sent them to New York City without any notice or coordination with his office.

Abbott said he ordered the new policy to send migrants to "sanctuary cities" like New York City because of the lack of response from the federal government for the immigration crisis.

“Because of President Biden’s continued refusal to acknowledge the crisis caused by his open border policies, the State of Texas has had to take unprecedented action to keep our communities safe,” read a statement from Abbott.

“I hope he follows through on his promise of welcoming all migrants with open arms so that our overrun and overwhelmed border towns can find relief," wrote Abbott about Mayor Adams.

Adams has resorted to calling on the White House to provide more resources to help the city deal with the migrants arriving from Texas.

Abbott has also sent migrants in buses to Washington, D.C., leading Mayor Muriel Bowser to call for assistance from the National Guard in order to deal with the thousands of new migrants in her city. On Friday, the head of the Department of Defense officially denied that request.
