Abbott Plays Defense to Patrick's Offense - Episode 162

Texas politicos have been asking themselves why Greg Abbott is going against not only the conservative coalition that opposed his re-election but Texans for Lawsuit Reform, Mayes Middleton, Charter School and school-choice advocates and the Teas Public Policy Foundation.
Greg Abbott rolled out a slew of runoff endorsements and chose the more liberal candidate in every race.
His endorsements point to one singular focus and that is setting up a Texas House that is opposed to Dan Patrick’s conservative agenda for 2023.
Today we discuss why this is happening and the implications to an Abbott victory or defeat in the upcoming runoff elections.
