WACO, Texas — Receiving the endorsement of the National Rifle Association and the Texas State Rifle Association, Gov. Greg Abbott stumped Wednesday in Waco.
Abbott reassured his support for "God-given rights." In his speech, he promised to protect the 2nd amendment, add border control and keep funding police departments.
Announcing support for Abbott, who is seeking a third term, during the gubernatorial campaign stop were Charles Cotton, president of the National Rifle Association, and Darryl Valdez, president of the Texas State Rifle Association.
In the March 1 primary, Abbott is squaring off against seven Republican hopefuls.
