AUSTIN, TX – Gov. Greg Abbott told Beto to "Bring It" following his announcement to challenge Abbott for Texas Governor.
As previously reported, on Nov. 15, Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke announced that he will be challenging Greg Abbott for the Texas Governor's Seat. Beto is a Texas Democrat from El Paso, who has most recently lost to Ted Cruz for his U.S. Senate seat and Joe Biden during the Democrat primary.
Shortly after Gov. Abbott responded with a reminder of what the Democrat party stands for.
He then made an eerie comparison to the current President of the United States, Joe Biden. In the tweet Abbott states that Biden is wrong for America and Beto was wrong for Texas.
In the midst of all the back and forth, Gov. Greg Abbott also congratulated Rep. Ryan Guillen, from HD-31, for leaving the Democrat party of Texas and joining the Republicans.
The primary election for the Texas Governor seat is set for Mar. 1 and the general election is Nov. 1.
