In California, true-red conservatives would be happy to have a governor like Greg Abbott. What we have here, what we have now with Gavin Newsom is the absolute pits. He is one of the worst governors, if not the worst governor, in the United States of America.
However, the people in Texas do not like Governor Greg Abbott.
For all the fawning and frolic of the Texas Legislators, with a GOP trifecta at their disposal, Texas Republicans elected to the Austin state legislature have NOT taken the necessary steps to enact the 8 key legislative priorities of the Texas GOP.
In fact, only two passed this past legislative session: constitutional carry and religious liberty protections. The Texas GOP has been fighting to abolish, not just limit, abortion for years. They wanted legislation to enact school choice. They also wanted to ban sex mutilation of minors.
Instead of pressing forward on enacting these priorities, Texas Republicans waste time, enacted long adjournment periods. The Speaker pandered to Democrats so that he could be elected Speaker of the House. Since then, he has let Democrats get away with slow-walking every conservative priority in Austin.
