Tuesday night, November 4, Texans picked new office holders. There was little surprise that republicans again swept the state and Attorney General Greg Abbott will be sworn in as the next governor.
That night Abbott gave his victory speech as the governor-elect of Texas.
"As Texans, the bonds we share transcend our differences," Abbott said. "We all want to live in safer communities, have greater opportunities, and to give all of our children lives worthy of their promise."
