Abbott Plays Defense to Patrick's Offense

Texas politicos have been asking themselves why Greg Abbott is going against not only the conservative coalition that opposed his re-election but also Texans for Lawsuit Reform, State Rep. Mayes Middleton, charter school and school-choice advocates, and the Texas Public Policy Foundation.

Greg Abbott recently rolled out a slew of runoff endorsements, and he chose the more liberal candidate in every race.

His endorsements point to a singular focus: setting up a Texas House that is opposed to Dan Patrick’s conservative agenda for 2023.

Today, we discuss why this is happening and the implications of an Abbott victory or defeat in the upcoming runoff elections.
