DALLAS, TX, October 11, 2021 — After publicly supporting private vaccine mandates for months, Greg Abbott has reversed his position on the issue, caving to the pressure being brought by the Huffines Campaign, the Texas Republican Party, and many other conservatives across the state.
Conservative Republican candidate for governor Don Huffines issued the following statement:
“When I tell Texans I’m serious about protecting their God-given liberties I mean it. As Governor I will ensure no Texan is ever fired for refusing to take a vaccine. I am very pleased to see that our campaign has forced Greg Abbott to reverse his position on this important issue.”
In August, Greg Abbott’s office was asked about private vaccine mandates. At that time, Abbott’s press office told the Texas Tribune: “Private businesses don’t need government running their business.”
Don Huffines is a proud fifth-generation Texan, husband, father, grandfather, and self-made entrepreneur. A committed conservative, Huffines is fighting to safeguard Texans’ elections, phase out property taxes, and secure the border once and for all. Huffines is challenging Gov. Greg Abbott from the right in the Texas Republican primary. Texans deserve leadership. No excuses.
