In reelection announcement, Abbott takes aim at Soros and Pelosi

Abbott says George Soros made the difference for Ds in 2016 in Texas, pointing to cash Soros spent on the DAs race in Houston

It’s official: Governor Greg Abbott announced his re-election campaign just after 3 p.m. today in San Antonio, where he also announced his first gubernatorial campaign exactly four years ago.

“It’s great to be back in a town where I once waited on tables,” Abbott said as he first took the stage following an introduction from his daughter, Aubrey Abbott, who joked about how tough it had been on her father when she chose to go to college in California.

As of yet, Abbott is facing no serious gubernatorial opponents, so he turned to George Soros and Nancy Pelosi to rile up the crowd against “far left liberals.”
