Beto O’Rourke is trying to convince Texas voters to get rid of Greg Abbott as governor.
Democratic gubernatorial nominee Beto O’Rourke has been traveling across the state promoting several reasons to be elected.
According to the Dallas Morning News, O’Rourke is focusing on jobs, education, and health care during his cross state tour. His 20 city tour attempts to highlight Abbott’s failures as Texas governor. “I want to make sure that we always begin with and focus on the big important things. And so I keep coming back to jobs, schools and the ability to see a doctor, because almost all of us can agree on those things,” he said.
“You and I may disagree on the issue of abortion, or may have different opinions when it comes to transgender children. But we can agree that we should be creating more higher paying jobs in the state of Texas,” O’Rourke continued.
O’Rourke is an underdog in his race against the current governor. O’Rourke has not seen as big of turnout as he did during his campaign for senator. He still bears stains from his 2020 presidential bid as well.
Abbott campaign spokesman Mark Miner said, “Beto O’Rourke has run one of the most lackluster campaigns ever, changing policy positions daily depending on which part of the state he happens to be in. The only thing Beto has been consistent on is his complete inconsistency on issues. No matter how hard he tries to reinvent himself, we will continue reminding the public of his support for gun control, open borders and the Green New Deal that will kill hundreds of thousands of Texas energy jobs.”
