Republican Greg Abbott has traded in his title as attorney general, for one that says governor-elect. He’s bringing his negotiating skills to the job though, as Abbott has pledged to work with Democrats over the next four years.
Greg Abbott began his political career in 1996, when he was appointed to the Texas Supreme Court by then Governor George W. Bush. In 2002, he succeeded John Cornyn as the state’s attorney general, a position he has held since. But now, Abbott starts a new political adventure as the 48th governor of Texas.
