Abbott discuses transition to Texas governorship

🕐 1 min read

 

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Gov.-elect Greg Abbott is to reveal to the news media plans for his transition into his new job.

The Republican attorney general’s Tuesday news conference at the Capitol is the second of its kind in the week since he bested his Democratic opponent, state Sen. Wendy Davis, in the midterm elections.

 

On Monday, Abbott met with Texas Department of Transportation officials to discuss top infrastructure priorities heading into the legislative session convening in January.

 

Abbott has promised to increased state spending on key transportation projects he says are vital to keeping Texas competitive in the business world.

 

Abbott takes office Jan. 20.

 

The longest-serving governor in state history, Gov. Rick Perry, didn’t seek re-election but may run again for president in 2016. His 2012 White House bid fizzled.
