Gregg Abbott is going to be the next governor of Texas, and he’s got pretty much the same philosophical view about taxes and regulations and the legal system that I do. Why change a winning formula if it’s working?

Texas Republicans are becoming more and more radical. This ‘game’ points to a growing anti-immigrant sentiment from within the Republican Party in Texas… Much like the rhetoric that gave birth to Proposition 187 in California in the 1990s and SB 1070 in Arizona just a few years ago, the Texas Republican Party is fostering disturbing divisions in our state. Not only have all 4 GOP candidates for Lieutenant Governor vowed to repeal the Texas DREAM Act, but Greg Abbott, the top GOP gubernatorial candidate, has stated that he would change the law yet refuses to give specifics. Texas has a proud and rich immigrant history. These anti-immigrant ‘games’ are out of step with Texas’ values and have been for generations.

I am pro-life. I care about the life of every child: every child that goes to bed hungry, every child that goes to bed without a proper education, every child that goes to bed without being able to be a part of the Texas dream, every woman and man who worry about their children’s future and their ability to provide for that future. I care about life and I have a record of fighting for people above all else.
