Governor Abbott’s Statement On Pete Flores’ Victory

AUSTIN – Governor Greg Abbott released a statement following Pete Flores’ victory in Senate District 19 this evening. In the final month of the campaign, Texans for Greg Abbott ran targeted digital ads, knocked on over 20,000 doors and performed Get Out The Vote duties to assist the Flores campaign in securing tonight’s victory.

“I want to congratulate Pete Flores on his hard fought victory for State Senate in today’s special election,” said Governor Abbott. “I am proud to have endorsed Pete, and am certain he will fight for the interests of the people in SD-19, whether it’s improving education, reining in property taxes, or expanding economic opportunity. Pete’s strong law enforcement background will be invaluable to the legislature as we work to combat human trafficking and provide greater protections for our peace officers. I look forward to working alongside him next session to build a brighter future for all Texans.”
