Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) has won reelection, defeating Democrat former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, who has now run unsuccessful presidential, Senate, and gubernatorial campaigns.
On Tuesday, Texas voters gave Abbott a resounding victory against O’Rourke.
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.

In recent weeks, O’Rourke campaigned heavily on protecting abortion “rights” across Texas, but the issue fell flat as voters have been focused primarily on inflation, the economy, crime, and immigration.
Over the last decade, Democrats have desperately sought to transform Texas into a viable swing state. Those efforts have failed as Texans have rebuffed Democrat challenges in House, Senate, gubernatorial, and presidential races.
