Here's a look forward to the Tuesday, March 4, 2014 Republican Primary featuring Greg Abbott a 2014 Candidate for Governor of Texas

Greg Abbott announced his candidacy for Governor of Texas on this, the anniversary date of perhaps one of the greatest misfortunes of his life. Looking back 29 years, Abbott, while jogging in Houston had the misfortune of having a huge oak tree crack and fall on him, crushing his back, and damaging his kidneys. Thus, Abbott has spent the last 29 years in a wheelchair.

He is one of the nation’s leading advocates for stopping the federal overreach of the Obama Administration, a defender of the Constitution, and a conservative to the core: Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott. 

Few leaders have amassed a record of defending state sovereignty like Greg Abbott. Abbott has filed more than two dozen lawsuits against the Obama Administration. He has taken on burdensome EPA regulations and succeeded. He fought ObamaCare all the way to the United States Supreme Court. He has stood on the solid ground of the 10th Amendment to protect local classrooms, and individual freedom. 

A husband and father, Greg Abbott understands the importance of preserving Constitutional, traditional values – like faith, family and freedom for future generations. That’s why as the state’s chief law enforcement official, Abbott has made protecting children, families and values the focus of his administration. 

Shortly after taking office, Attorney General Abbott established a Cyber Crimes Unit to arrest criminals who use the Internet to prey upon children; a Fugitive Unit to arrest convicted sex offenders who violate their parole; and an expanded Medicaid Fraud Control Unit to crack down on elder abuse and waste of taxpayer dollars. Since taking office, General Abbott has collected more than $25 billion in child support for Texas children. 

Attorney General Abbott believes there is no higher power than God, and in March 2005 he personally appeared before the United States Supreme Court, where he successfully defended the constitutionality of the Ten Commandments display that adorns the Texas Capitol grounds. 

Greg Abbott was reelected as the 50th Attorney General of Texas on November 2, 2010. Prior to his election to three terms as Attorney General, Greg Abbott served as a Justice on the Texas Supreme Court and as a State District Judge in Harris County.

A native Texan, Attorney General Abbott was born in Wichita Falls and raised in Duncanville. After graduating from The University of Texas with a B.B.A. in Finance, he received his law degree from Vanderbilt University. Shortly after graduating from law school, he was partially paralyzed by a falling tree while jogging. He and his wife, Cecilia, a former school teacher and principal, have been married for 31 years. They live in Austin with their daughter, Audrey. He is an avid sportsman and hunter.
