Gov. Abbott promises multiple special sessions, support for primary challengers over “school choice” legislation
"There’s any easy way to get it done, and there’s a hard way. Either way, I’m in this to win this.”
Essentially acknowledging that
school voucher legislation still has no chance of passing the Texas Legislature
this fall, Gov. Greg Abbott on Tuesday said he would call a special session
in October to be followed up by another. Then he said he will ultimately end up
supporting primary challengers for noncompliant GOP members.
During a tele-townhall,
Abbott and some faith leaders said they’d rally for “school choice” throughout
the end of the year.
