Governor Greg Abbott stopped in Abilene on Monday on a campaign swing through the Big Country. Governor Abbott is making his way around Texas to rally support before the voting deadline next Tuesday. A few hundred people gathered downtown at The Front Porch Coffee Company and Bakery to listen to the Governor’s speech.

Abbott expressed how great it felt to be back in Abilene, and urged people to go vote for him if they had not been to the polls yet, “Now let me tell you something that you may not expect. And that is the winner or loser of this election is not gonna be me. The winner or loser of this election is going to be you, your family, your children, their grandchildren, and the future of all of you.”

The most recent poll out of UT Tyler shows Abbott with a six-point lead over his Democratic challenger, Beto O’Rourke. However, when pollsters expanded the survey from likely voters to also include registered voters, Abbott’s lead shrank to three points.

Early voting for the general election ends Friday, and Election Day is next Tuesday.
