Greg Abbott, Texas Governor is seeking a new term.
On Tuesday, Abbott uploaded a video to social networks in which he signed the paperwork to run again for office.
Abbott stated in the video, “I want to let you know that I am running to be re-elected to protect and secure our borders.”
Abbott seeks to win his third term. Abbott was first elected in 2014.
Beto O’Rourke (Democrat) is the most well-known Democrat to have entered the race.
Last week, the former congressman and presidential candidate for El Paso made his announcement.
Since Ann Richards’ 1990 election, Texas has not elected any Democratic governor.
