About Gregg Abbott
Gregg Abbott is the 48th Governor of State of Texas. He is a Republican. Prior to being elected Governor as Texas’ longest-serving Attorney General. During his time serving as Attorney General, he collected more than $31 billion in child support for Texas children. He is noted outside of Texas for successfully advocating the right of the state of Texas to display the Ten Commandments in front of the Texas State Capitol in Austin, in a 2005 United States Supreme Court decision. Governor Abbott cast a vision to build a better future for Texas, a vision focused on creating jobs and economic opportunity, improving education, building transportation infrastructure and securing Texas’ border in the face of federal government inaction. Texas Governor Greg Abbott lost his ability to walk when a huge oak tree crashed down on his back, fracturing vertebrae into his spinal cord, leaving him forever paralyzed when he was 26 years old. He has written a book recounting how he came back from this tragic accident to Governor. The book link here: Broken but Unbowed.
