Abbott Insults Dallas (August 29, 2014)

DALLAS – Today Greg Abbott dropped out of a long-planned Dallas gubernatorial debate, the day after he was defeated in court for protecting an unconstitutional education system that overcrowds students and understaffs schools, even closing many. 

“I’m not surprised Abbott is too afraid to defend his record,” said Dallas County Democratic Party Chair Darlene Ewing. 

“How can he explain why he sides against schools and rape victims and lets his friends pocket cancer research dollars? His record and his cowardice are insulting to Dallas.”
