Former President Donald Trump on Monday threw his powerful endorsement to incumbent GOP Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, calling him a “fighter” and a “Great Governor for the incredible people of Texas.”
Abbott will be running for his third term as governor of the Lone Star state in 2022 and has been a close ally of the former president.
“No Governor has done more to secure the Border and keep our communities safe than Governor Abbott,” Trump said in his statement issued through his Save America PAC. “Greg is a staunch defender of the Second Amendment and has made Texas a Second Amendment Sanctuary State.”
Trump also said that “Texas has become a job-creating machine,” adding that his and Abbot’s partnership “helped restore America’s economic power and success.”
“Greg is also very tough on crime, fully supports the brave men and women of Law Enforcement, and is all in on Election Integrity,” Trump continued. “Governor Greg Abbott will continue to be a great leader for the Lone Star State, and has my Complete and Total Endorsement for re-election. He will never let you down!”
"Greg Abbott is a fighter and a Great Governor for the incredible people of Texas. No Governor has done more to secure the Border and keep our communities safe than Governor Abbott…He will never let you down!"
