Abbott, Davis to address law enforcement group

🕐 1 min read

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The top two candidates for governor will address the Texas’ largest law enforcement union.

The Combined Law Enforcement Associations of Texas is scheduled to give an award to Democratic Sen. Wendy Davis on Friday. Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott will also give a keynote address.

Both candidates have a long history of supporting law enforcement. Abbott is the state’s top attorney and Davis is being named the Legislative Crime Fighter of the Year for her work eliminating the backlog of untested rape kits.

The organization has 18,500 members across the state and provides legal, lobbying and collective bargaining services to members.

Davis is the only Democratic candidate running to replace Gov. Rick Perry when he retires in 2015. Abbott faces two challengers for the Republican nomination.
