The article on Greg Abbott was a fair description of his politics and his motivation as a person with a disability to become Governor of Texas.
There is one correction on a statement attributed to me, saying I heard Attorney General Abbott make about declaring a victory at the Battle of San Jacinto. The issue he was referring to in his comments was about how Texas would prevail over the Affordable Care Act in the courts not the ADA. He made the analogy that, the Supreme Court ruling that the ACA was constitutional, was like the lose Texas received at the battle at the Alamo but that Texas would ultimately prevail at the Battle of San Jacinto.
ADAPT of Texas has just started a new non partisan Disability Voting Action Project (DVAP)to better involve Texans with disabilities and our supporters in what will be a very exciting political season in Texas.

Bob, I stand corrected. Hope you are well,
Very disingenuous for Mr. Abbott to call himself a door opener for people with disabilities while using his office to deny ADA protections to fellow citizens. I hear his argument that he is the state’s defense attorney. Of course, as governor he would be elected to serve all Texans, nobody’s attorney. A very direct way for Mr. Abbott to counter his inconsistencies is to state that, if elected, he would prioritize the waiver of sovereign immunity to ADA violations. That would align with the overwhelming majority of Texans who hate discrimination for any reason.
