White Devil Beto LOSES to Abbott in Uvalde
The evil menace known as Beto was soundly defeated by Greg Abbott in Uvalde County, according to results from Tuesday’s election in the race for Governor of Texas.
I guess campaigning on dead kids to circumvent the Bill of Rights isn’t as compelling to normal people as Democrats thought.
AUSTIN — More than five months after the deadliest school shooting in Texas history, Uvalde County voted to reelect Gov. Greg Abbott, despite months of anger at the two-term governor for what many in Uvalde saw as one of the key figures in law enforcement’s response to the mass shooting.
Abbott won a third term as governor Tuesday, beating Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke. With all 14 Uvalde precincts reporting, Abbott unofficially received 60.27% of the vote versus 31.55% for O’Rourke. Abbott carried the county, which is still reeling from the Robb Elementary School mass shooting where 21 people were killed.
Less than 1/3rd is pretty bad.
But O’Rourke made the mass shooting — the sixth in Abbott’s tenure — one of the central issues of his campaign. A day after the May 24 shooting, O’Rourke interrupted an Abbott press conference at Uvalde High School and yelled, “This is on you.”
Beto is a sick freak.
Gun control advocates pressed Abbott to take action to stop mass shootings weeks after Uvalde. Advocates blamed him for not calling a special session after the Uvalde shootings and for saying he can’t raise the minimum age for buying an assault weapon from 18 to 21 because it would not survive legal challenges and violates the Second Amendment.
Abbott was also criticized for not canceling a campaign fundraiser in Huntsville the day of the shooting and instead spent nearly three hours at a private home in East Texas. Abbott initially said that the stop was brief and to let people know he could not stay. But campaign finance reports and flight tracking data revealed that he spent about three hours in the town.
I guess people were expecting Abbott to roll into the school and stop the shooter himself?
Given how the police stood down over an hour, I suppose it’s possible Abbott could have personally stopped the shooter before police if he would have had a plane at the ready.
Is this a solution to mass shootings in Texas—a heavily armed Governor Abbott with a Cessna on standby, just in case a mass shooting breaks out?
This kind of governance would have saved lives more lives in Uvalde than gun registration or banning semi-autos.
