[Ed. – Well, this is creepy.]

Governor Abbott was back in the news when he spoke of the “cult of Beto.”  This is what he said on Fox:

“He’s been a cult-like, very popular figure the way that he’s run the campaign, but you don’t vote on cult, you don’t vote on personality when you get to the U.S. Senate. You vote on the issues[.]” …

Abbott was critical of O’Rourke’s liberal policy views, saying Texas voters won’t approve of “George Soros policies” such as higher taxes. …
