Campaign Frantically Plans to Bus In Outside Supporters
It’s no secret that Greg Abbott has been having real trouble generating support from Hispanic voters, particularly Texans who live near our border.
In fact, he's frightened by even the notion of facing fair-minded Texans who live in our border region. That's why he refused to allow a live audience at his debate with Wendy Davis on September 19th in McAllen. Abbott fears the reaction of a live audience as he tries to defend a record of hostility to Hispanic Texans.
Statement from Lone Star Project Director Matt Angle
The term “deadbeat” is used to describe adults who don’t fulfill their obligation to kids. Greg Abbott’s failure to fulfill his responsibility to help provide a good public education to Texas kids makes him the state’s biggest deadbeat.
Today former Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) official, Jerry Cobbs, pled not guilty to felony corruption and will face trial on August 17th. Cobbs is accused of assisting in awarding an $11 million dollar grant to a Dallas company who did not go through the proper review process.
Here at the Lone Star Project, we were deeply saddened to learn that our good friend, Larry Scanlon, former Political Director of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees was killed in a car wreck late last week.
