For many, the Texas Gubernatorial race seems like a sure victory for Greg Abbott. This could not be further from the truth.

Memories of how he handled the pandemic, freeze, and churches have many looking for options. Greg Abbott's track record is weak even though he received a good review from Donald Trump this weekend in Conroe at the “Save America Rally”. The border talking points may not be enough for Abbott.

People and organizations all around the great state of Texas are supporting one or more of his opponents. The True Texas Project Website reads:

“So why do we want so badly to get rid of Abbott? That’s the easy part. While he’s done a good job of appearing to be one of us now that it’s election season, most of us have been in this game long enough to recognize smoke and mirrors when we see it.”

Three candidates incumbent Greg Abbott, Don Huffines, and Allen West—have received the most media attention.

No incumbent governor in Texas has lost his or her party's nomination since 1978 when Gov. Dolph Briscoe (D) lost to then-Attorney General John Hill (D). Republicans are strong in Texas. Governor Ann Richards was the last Democrat to hold office in Texas. (1991 - 1995)

With “Religious Freedom” and “Constitutional Carry” being his only two real accomplishments, Greg Abbot struggles to convince the majority of voters he is the only choice.

Here are the two choices for Governor of Texas the media has been covering.

Donald Huffines and Allen B. West (Republican Party) are running for election for Governor of Texas. They are on the ballot in the Republican primary on March 1, 2022.

No matter what happens on the Republican side of this ballot it is almost a guarantee that a Republican will be Governor of Texas.

Go to for all the candidates in this race.
