Senator Ken Paxton Says He Will Continue The Fight Greg Abbott Started If Elected Texas Attorney General [AUDIO]
On the Thursday edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Senator Ken Paxton, Republican candidate for Texas Attorney General, talked with Chad Hasty about his campaign.
Senator Paxton said he has over 20 years of legal experience and over 10 years of senate experience, and believes he is the best man to carry on the fight against the Obama administration that was started by the current Attorney General Greg Abbott. He said that when Abbott started his service at Attorney General, he didn't know he would be fighting so hard against Obama. But, Paxton went on to add that Abbott has performed and fought back admirably, and that he intends to continue that fight.
"The one thing I've really appreciated about Greg Abbott is when he started this job, we didn't have Barack Obama. We didn't have this assault on Texas. We didn't have quite the assault on the 10th Amendment that we have now. When he started this job, he didn't realize that he was going to be facing this. But he recognized it quickly and he stood up to fight. I felt that we needed someone to step in and continue that fight. And I think my proven record of conservatism and fighting, I'm the only one who has that record."
Paxton said that one of the big issues he plans on tacking if elected as Attorney General is Obamacare, calling it the worst legislation he has even seen passed in the Senate. He also said he expects voter ID, House Bill 2, and marriage laws to come under fire in Texas. Paxton also addressed the need for improved border security, and also criticized his opponent Barry Smitherman for his lack of experience.
