DMN: Attorney General Paxton also left Texas during ice storm disaster
Reporters Lauren McGaughy and Allie Morris with
Attorney General Ken
Paxton left Texas for Utah during last week’s deep freeze to meet with his
counterpart there. Paxton’s campaign spokesman did not answer questions about
when the attorney general left or returned. According to a spokesman for Utah
Attorney General Sean Reyes, Paxton was in Utah by Wednesday afternoon because
the two Republicans had a meeting that day. The attorneys general discussed an
antitrust lawsuit several states are pursuing against Google, and Paxton
attended a demonstration of a police training program, Paxton’s campaign
spokesman Ian Prior said.
It’s not clear why the visit was not rescheduled. Prior
said the pair met multiple times over the course of several days.
