DMN: Attorney General Paxton also left Texas during ice storm disaster

Reporters Lauren McGaughy and Allie Morris with the scoop:

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.
