Another endorsement has rolled into the Texas gubernatorial race, with Grassroots America – We The People announcing their support for former Texas GOP Chairman Allen West, calling him the “battle-tested warrior Texas needs to fix the mess Greg Abbott has made of our state and defend her from DC tyrants.”
“Texas needs a principled, strategic disrupter – a bold painter to write freedom on the hearts of Texans – all Texans – in a language they can understand. Therefore, we confidently and heartily endorse LTC Allen West (RET) for Texas Governor,” the organization, led by JoAnn Fleming, said in its statement.
In announcing the endorsement, the organization also acknowledged other challengers in the race.
“We are also deeply grateful to Don Huffines and Chad Prather who have long aimed a bright spotlight of truth on the mess Abbott has made, while bringing forth bold solutions. When Texas needed courageous fighters to step up, they answered the call, running to the front of the battle. Godspeed to them both.”
The endorsement comes after GAWTP held a forum with Abbott’s three biggest challengers earlier this month.
Early voting in the Republican primary begins February 14. Election Day is March 1.
