A new ad came out and attacks Texas Governor Greg Abbott. Abbott is running for re-election against Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke for the seat in Austin on November 8.

The Mi Familia website mentioned that they were against Governor Abbott for this election. They feel he has harmed the Latino community over these issues:

  • voter suppression
  • lack of Medicaid expansion during the pandemic
  • Abbott’s anti-immigrant stance

The Could Have Been Worse LLC also produced an earlier video that you can see here.

Héctor Sánchez Barba, executive director and CEO of Mi Familia Vota said:

“Governor Greg Abbott’s leadership and policy priorities have harmed the Latino community in Texas. His rhetoric and policy choices are contributing to continued targeted attacks on the Latino community, the passage of voter suppression bills, a lack of Medicaid expansion during a pandemic, and constant anti-immigrant rhetoric from our state leadership.”
“We know that [Abbott] is fully aligned with the anti-Latino MAGA movement; that is why this election cycle, we are saying #BastaAbbott in Texas. Latinos are the largest demographic in the state and 30 percent of the state’s electorate; we will make our voices heard and hold Governor Abbott accountable to our community.”

The ad narrator said:

“Abbot nos abandonó when he said that the El Paso shooter was mentally ill and didn’t condemn that it was a racist event fueled by Trump’s ‘Hispanic invasion’ claims.”
“Abbott nos abandonó en Uvalde, when he said police did ‘a great job’ and that thanks to this police force intervention things were not worse.”
“Abbott nos abandonó and now, it’s payback time. Ya basta, Abbott! This time, we’re abandoning you.”

You can watch the entire video here. The video is 1:38 minutes long.
