Texas Governor Thanks Voters For Reelection: ‘Now It’s Time to Go to Work’

Looks like Beta Beto has continued his streak of losing races that feature massive expenditures by Democrats! Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) celebrated his victory against the Democrat Tuesday and has promised to work for the people of Texas.

“I ran for the farmers and ranchers down here on the border who pleaded for a more secure border in the state of Texas. And I ran for the thousands of Texans who came up to me and they said, ‘Governor, just keep Texas Texas,’” he said to a crowd at the Rio Grande Valley.

“And all of you inspired me and all of you propelled me to what has now become a resounding victory for my reelection. So, now it’s time to go to work for all of those people as well as for all Texans, and it starts by keeping Texas as the number one state for the best economy in America and the number one state for jobs,” said the governor.

Abbot won the gubernatorial election handily, defeating Democrat former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, who previously ran and failed for the offices of Senate and the United States presidency.

“The successful reelection campaign comes as the establishment media has for months attacked Abbott for his busing border crossers and illegal aliens to sanctuary cities like Chicago, New York City, and Washington, DC,” said Breitbart News.

O’Rourke focused much of his campaign on protecting so-called abortion “rights,” but voters paid far more attention to the crime wave, immigration, and a crumbling economy, according to the outlet.

Abbott’s now defeated opponent has run and lost for national office in the state before — O’Rourke set the record for the costliest Senate race in US history before losing to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in 2018.

“Tonight Texans sent a message that they want to keep the Lone Star State the beacon of opportunity that we provided over the past eight years,” the Texas governor wrote in a social media post on Tuesday evening:
