“What I was saying was actually just a repeat that was actually said by a Democrat State Representative in the Rio Grande Valley who switched to the Republican party earlier this week and those were his words.

The people of South Texas they do want to support their police officers, they do believe in their 2nd amendment rights and the list goes on. The progressive ideology that the Democrat party has adopted is inconsistent with the needs of the people who live in South Texas.”Governor Greg Abbott
Governor Abbott’s campaign said they have more cash on hand than any other statewide candidate in Texas history, with more than $55 million dollars.
