This is a positive development, but we must demand accountability from Greg Abbott and his appointees for theCRTclass beingrequired in the first place.”

“My campaign is about leadership, no excuses which is not what we have in the governor’s office right now.Greg Abbott is a failed leader who has broken his promises to secure the Texas Border, safeguard our elections, and protect our tax dollars from funding Critical Race Theory and transgender ideology.I look forward to continuing to rally Texans around my campaign to put an actual Republican in the governor’s office.”
