AUSTIN – “Beto O’Rourke lied to Texans today when he accused Governor Greg Abbott of traveling to McAllen for a fundraiser tonight. The truth is, Governor Abbott is traveling to McAllen this weekend to host his Hispanic Leadership Summit where he will make a major campaign announcement.  Beto O’ Rourke continues to run a campaign based on lies, deception and fear mongering in an attempt to run from his support for defunding the police, open borders and job killing policies. It’s clearly amateur hour at the O’Rourke campaign.”
