To supporting law enforcement.

“In Texas, we support law enforcement period,” says Governor Abbott.

But one of the main points the Governor wanted to drive home was to encourage Victorians to get out and vote.

“So go vote if you haven’t already! It’s so important. Let me explain to you why it’s so important, Texas is in a tipping point,” says Governor Abbott.

Bill Pozzi is the Victoria County Republican Party Chair and says the Governor fares well in the Crossroads.

After his remarks, the Governor took pictures with whoever wanted one but he was headed to San Antonio next for another campaign stop so Governor Abbott’s team said there was no time for questions.
