A potential governor who hails from Longview told local supporters Tuesday he hopes to take their values to the Governor’s Mansion in 2015.

“Let me go back to those values — it’s those values that are behind the fights that I’ve been waging against the federal government,” Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott told some 120 backers at Papacita’s Mexican Restaurant. “I’ve been fighting for your constitutional principles.”

The state’s top prosecutor has sued President Barack Obama’s administration 28 times, including an ongoing court battle against the Affordable Care Act.

Abbott included his passion for pushing back at what he deems federal intrusion as one of three focuses in an Abbott administration.

Gregg abbott has no INTEGRITY OR MORAL VALUES. He used our tax dollars to file suit against the Austin American Statesman to keep them from publishing who was receiving our tax dollars in the Formula 1 race track deal between Rick Perry, Susan Combs and David Dewhurst and a private company headed by a person already convicted in Calif of a land scandle. IF YOU VOTE FOR THIS CROOK YOU HAVE NO INTEGRITY AND YOUR VALUES ARE IN QUESTION.
