Texas Governor, Greg Abbott has issued a statement congratulating Donald Trump on being elected the 45th President of the United States.

Governor Abbott said, "one thing from this election is abundantly clear — millions of Americans feel they have been ignored by a political class in Washington, D.C. that prioritizes protecting an elite establishment before We the People. Now that the people have spoken, it is essential that elected officials work together to address the enormous challenges facing our nation."

The Governor said he looks forward to working with the new administration to, among other things, secure our border, and restore the balance of power between the states and the federal government.
