Texas takes pride in its good roads and lovely landscape along its highways. However, on Monday, December 6, the state's transportation department had to respond to a 'Let's Go Brandon' road sign.
Following the flashing of the Let's Go Brandon sign on media, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) issued a statement saying, "This sign is stationed on one of TxDOT's SH 6 projects and belongs to the contractor. The message has been taken down, and TxDOT is in contact with the contractor about this."
According to KWTX News, TxDOT has identified the sign just west of Waco, in Central Texas along Highway 6 near Valley Mills High School. as belonging to third-party contractor Big Creek Construction. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" has evolved to mean criticizing President Joe Biden.

The shout "Let's go Brandon" began in early October, following NASCAR driver Brandon Brown's victory in the Xfinity Series race at Talladega, Alabama. Some supporters in the background began chanting "F**k Joe Biden!" while Brown was being interviewed by sportscaster Kelli Stavas. The NBC reporter claimed the crowd was chanting "let's go, Brandon," and it has subsequently been referred to as damage control. Following this, crowds chanted "f**k Joe Biden" at various sporting events. Even during a World Series game last month in Atlanta, Georgia, where Trump was in attendance, the fans turned toward him and screamed "Let's go Brandon," to which he reacted with a smile and a nod of agreement.
People have started making memes using the words 'Let's go Brandon' and putting them all over social media. The slogan 'Let's go Brandon' or 'F**k Joe Biden' has been made into clothing, including sweatshirts and flags. Texas has always been a Republican bastion, and its governor, Greg Abbott, will face leftist sensation Beto O'Rourke in a 2022 election. Senator Ted Cruz beat Beto O'Rourke by a razor-thin margin in the 2018 midterm elections.
