Texas Gov. Greg Abbott makes campaign stop in Texarkana just days ahead of election
TEXARKANA, Texas (KSLA) - Election Day is Nov. 8, and many candidates are making last-minute efforts to sway some voters.
On Wednesday, Nov. 2, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who is running for another term, made a campaign stop in Texarkana. It’s all part of his Get Out the Vote tour. The governor also made stops in Jersey Village and Beaumont on Wednesday.
A number of supporters gathered at Big Jake’s Bar-B-Que in Texarkana to hear the governor speak.
Gov. Abbott discussed a number of topics Wednesday, including:
- “Who’s money is that? Ours.”
- “If you want to come to the United State of America, there is a legal way to come to the United States.”
- “We need law enforcement to protect our communities.”
- “There’s a lot on the line this election, a lot at stake.”
A number of people at the event spoke to KSLA about why they support Abbott.
“I love what he supports and what he believes in,” said Jim Maertins.
One attendee, Peggy Smith, said she came to the event specifically to talk to Abbott face to face. “Abbott is deregulating all of our instructor programs, our hours,” she said.
“Elections are important. Everybody need to vote, and they need to vote educatedly,” said Annell Langdon, another participant.
The incumbent governor will face Beto O’Rourke, Delilah Barrios, Mark Tippetts, Jacqueline Abernathy and Mark Goloby in the Nov. 8 election.
