DALLAS, TX, November 15, 2021 — Following Democrat Beto O’Rourke’s announcement he is running for Governor of Texas, conservative Republican candidate Don Huffines reiterated the need for actual conservative leadership in Texas.
Huffines issued the following statement:
“Democrats are licking their chops at the opportunity to run against Greg Abbott because they know he’s a failed leader. He has failed to secure the Texas Border, failed to cut skyrocketing property taxes, and failed to keep Texans’ lights on. To make matters worse, Abbott made it easier for Democrats to engage in voter fraud by lowering the criminal penalty from a felony to a misdemeanor. In order to win victory in November of 2022 and keep Texas red, Texas Republicans must nominate an actual Republican leader with a record of fighting for taxpayers.”
Huffines further added:
“Beto O’Rourke is a radical Leftist whose views on abortion, gun rights, and just about everything else are outright hostile to the values of everyday Texans. I look forward to not only beating Greg Abbott in the Republican primary but also beating Beto O’Rourke in the November general election.”
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.
