GOP nominee for Texas governor gets ‘credible’ endorsement
The conservative blog Daily Caller reports that Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) received a “credible” endorsement from Texas Gov.
Greg Abbott (R).
DeSantsons website describes the endorsement as a “solid endorsement.”
The endorsement comes after the candidate earned an impressive 13% of the vote in the state’s Republican primary in May, making him the only statewide candidate in the history of the state to win at least 20% of all the vote.
In June, DeSantas website reported that Abbott endorsed DeSanto in the race.
In a statement on his campaign website, Abbott praised DeSantes “steadfast commitment to fiscal responsibility and economic growth,” adding that the former congressman has “exceeded expectations as he has continued to demonstrate his ability to deliver results.”
“I am honored and pleased to have this opportunity to represent Texas in the U.S. Senate, and I look forward to continuing to work with Congressman Ron DeSalto as we work toward the full promise of Texas,” Abbott said.
While Abbott was endorsed by Abbott, his Democratic opponent, state Attorney General Devon Anderson, also received endorsements from two prominent conservative groups.
In addition, conservative pundit Rush Limbaugh, who also runs the conservative talk show The Rush Limbaugh Show, tweeted that the endorsement was “a good sign” for the Republican candidate.
