AUSTIN, Texas — Right now, failed and flailing Texas Governor Greg Abbott is promoting Donald Trump’s pet infrastructure project — a pointless wall no one wants. Texans have spoken clearly: the infrastructure project Texans actually want and need is an overhaul of our aging, sorely unregulated, disaster-prone power grid. Instead of using our border communities as political props to score points with Donald Trump’s base, Greg Abbott should start showing some leadership and fix our grid.
Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“South Texans don’t want Abbott’s wall, they don’t want Abbott’s racist rhetoric, and they don’t want Abbott’s massive government overreach and waste of taxpayer dollars. You know what South Texans want? We want a power grid that won’t cause a statewide disaster every time we need to crank the heat or turn up the AC. Governor Abbott, fix the damn grid.”
