Tyler, TX (KETK) — Attorney General Greg Abbott, who is currently running for that coveted Texas Governor's seat in Austin, made an appearance for a large crowd at a Tyler restaurant. Abbott grew up in Longview, Texas, and thinks it's about time an East Texan takes over.
Abbott is a strong advocate for protecting second amendment gun rights, and has fought for appealing Obamacare. Abbott said, "Already I have filed 30 lawsuits against Barak Obama, and I am not done yet". Abbott also believes in traditional family values, and desires to promote education.
In today's society, 63 percent of Americans believe unemployment is the country's number one problem. So one of Abbott's future goals, is to maintain Texas job growth. He said, "As Governor I will keep Texas number one in the nation for job creation. It doesn't matter how you slice it or dice it, Texas has created more job than any other state".
However his latest political move was the debut of a campaign against Democratic opponent, Wendy Davis. Within this advertisement Davis is portrayed as a flip-flopper who is not ready for office. To view the full advertisement, visit: http://www.gregabbott.com/media-news/videos/ .
Of course the best way to get your voice heard, is to vote for your representative. Early voting began Tuesday.
