The State of Texas is very unique in the way it is
operated. It stands as one of the frontier states in
executing its actions. However, one of the most
unique aspects of the way Texas is run, is the
Governorship of Texas. The current Governor of
Texas, Rick Perry, assumed office on December 21, 2000. With approximately 14 years of leadership
as Governor, Rick Perry will finally leave the stage November 4, 2014. This end of a regime will bring
a new era of leadership to the state of Texas. This battle for governor ultimately comes down between
Wendy Davis, and Greg Abbott.
The Democratic nominee for the Governor of Texas is Wendy Russell Davis. Wendy was born in 1963
in Rhode Island as Daughter of Jean and Jerry Russell. She has a degree from TCU in English and a
degree in law from Harvard. After serving her duty as a Texas Senator, she announced to run for
Governor of Texas in October 2013. Davis is running her platform with a liberal agenda that promotes
gun control and further abortion rights to the state of Texas. She wants to accomplish the goal of
making Texas a “Blue State.” She hopes to bring the agendas proclaimed from the current
administration to Texas. This agenda is disliked by many Texans as the agendas come across as
limiting the freedom which we are given as US citizens. Davis has also earned dislike as a result from
very scandalous political ads and slogans. One of them indicates “Stand for Wendy” advocating the
fact that the opponent, Greg Abbott, can’t stand due to his medical impairment. The solution to the
issues proposed by the Davis platform can be avoided by the platform of none other than Greg
Gregory Wayne Abbott as a native, proud, and informed Texan plans to bring a whole new meaning
to Texas Governorship as the Republican candidate. Abbott was born in 1957 in Wichita Falls, Texas.
He holds a degree in Finance from the University of Texas and a degree in Law from Vanderbilt.
Abbot holds the duty of Attorney General of Texas, standing up for justice, and striving for equality.
Unfortunately, a terrible tragedy came into reality for Abbott in 1984. He was jogging when,
unexpectedly, an Oak Tree fell on him, damaging his spine. It is by God’s grace that he survived. He
has since recovered must use a wheelchair for movement. However, he has still summoned the
strength to run for Governor on a conservative platform embracing freedom, equality, and pro-life
The competition will be tough for the election of the new governor in November. Abbott will ensure a
solid victory due to his positive influences on Texas and Texas to make our home state a better place
to live. May God ensure a safe and fair election by blessing both of the competitors and their
supporters. And, most importantly, God bless Texas.
