“Set Texas free!”
That’s the intro of a new radio advertisement airing on multiple radio markets around the state, inviting Texans to come to Austin to protest Gov. Greg Abbott’s coronavirus mandates and demand that he fully reopen Texas.
“It’s time to end the lockdown and get back to our lives. Gov. Abbott, set your state free,” the spot says, while highlighting the openness of other states, such as Florida and Tennessee.
Are you a business owner whose financial livelihood has been crushed by the governor’s lockdown?
Are you a bar owner or employee whose business has shut down, and Gov. Abbott just doesn’t seem to care?
Are you a parent or student frustrated that the governor doesn’t think you deserve a choice between online school or on-campus school?
Have you been prevented from seeing loved ones in the hospital or long-term care?
Or are you just sick and tired of the ridiculous statewide mask mandate?
The protest is scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 10, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Governor’s Mansion, located at 1010 Colorado St. in Austin.
Those slated to attend the event include Republican Party of Texas Chairman Allen West, Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, State Sen. Bob Hall, former State Sen. Don Huffines, former State Sen. Konni Burton, former State Rep. Matt Rinaldi, and other grassroots leaders, including Julie McCarty, JoAnn Fleming, Michael Quinn Sullivan, Mark Meckler, and others.
