Huffines Calls on Abbott to Keep His Word, Arrest Democrats
DALLAS, TX, July 15, 2021—Following reports from Republican lawmakers that DPS and Texas House officials have not received orders to apprehend Democrats in defiance of the Call of the House, conservative Republican candidate for governor Don Huffines condemned Greg Abbott for failing to keep his word to Texans.
Huffines issued the following statement:
“It’s disappointing, but unfortunately not surprising that while Greg Abbott is telling the national media he will arrest Democrat lawmakers who have refused to do their job in Texas, law enforcement personnel who report to him directly have received no such order. This is only the latest example of how Abbott is all talk, no action."
He further added:
"I’m calling on Greg Abbott to keep his word to Texans and instruct DPS to arrest any Democrat lawmaker who refuses to answer the Call of the House. Texans deserve leadership, no excuses.”
