newspaper in a very red part of texas turns on governor abbott [View all]

We were wrong.

A decade ago, we endorsed Greg Abbott, saying the then-Texas Attorney General was a man of good character who had “the respect necessary to govern our state.”

Our opinion of what makes a good governor hasn’t changed, but Abbott has. He’s become the Disrespecter-in-Chief of Texas.
