Texas Gov. Abbott joins Dunleavy in endorsing Trump for president


Texas Gov. Greg Abbott joined six other sitting governors who have endorsed former President Donald Trump for the 2024 presidential election.

The endorsement came as Trump returned to the U.S.-Mexico border at Edinburg, Texas on Sunday to give support to Texas National Guard soldiers, Texas Department of Public Safety officers, and the other service members trying to provide border security.

“I’m here to tell you that there is no way, no way that America can continue under the leadership of Joe Biden as our president. We need a president who’s going to secure the border,” Abbott said, as he introduced the former president.

“We need a president who is going to restore law and order in the United States of America, not letting these criminals run ransack over the stores that you see images of almost nightly,” Abbott said. “We need a president who is going to restore world peace, as opposed to this outbreak of warfare under Joe Biden. We need Donald J. Trump back as our President of the United States of America. I’m here to officially proclaim my endorsement for Donald J. Trump to be President of the United States of America again!”

Trump said the nomination meant a lot to him. He now has seven of the 26 sitting Republican governors in his camp, or 27% of all the Republican governors.

“You’re not going to have to worry about the border anymore, governor. You’re not going to have to worry about the border in Texas or Arizona or anywhere else,” Trump said.

During the three years of the Biden Administration, more than five million arrests of illegal immigrants have been made at the porous and uncontrolled border. The migrants are coming from all over the world, including the Middle East. Abbott is preparing to sign SB4, allowing state or local law enforcement to arrest anyone illegally crossing the border and allocating $1.5 billion to border security in Texas.

Abbott’s Operation Lone Star border security initiative has made him an enemy of the Biden Administration.

Gov. Mike Dunleavy of Alaska had endorsed Trump three months earlier than Abbott, and is said to be in line for a cabinet position if Trump wins the presidency in 2024. Other sitting governors who have endorsed Trump include Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders of Arkansas, Gov. Jim Justice of West Virginia, Gov. Henry McMaster of South Carolina, Gov. Kristi Noem of South Dakota, and Gov. Tate Reeves of Mississippi.

Lieutenant governors and Secretaries of State who have endorsed Trump include these 10:

  • Will Ainsworth, Lieutenant Governor of Alabama
  • Andrew Bailey, Attorney General of Missouri 
  • Pamela Evette, Lieutenant Governor of South Carolina
  • Mark Hammond, Secretary of State of South Carolina
  • Delbert Hosemann, Lieutenant Governor of Mississippi 
  • Burt Jones, Lieutenant Governor of Georgia
  • Mike Kehoe, Lieutenant Governor of Missouri
  • Frank LaRose, Secretary of State of Ohio
  • Dan Patrick, Lieutenant Governor of Texas
  • Mark Robinson, Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina


  1. “Texas Gov. Greg Abbott joined six other sitting governors who have endorsed former President Donald Trump for the 2024 presidential election.”

    Abbott is definitely a sitting governor.

  2. Obviously, if we were to control our southern borders, these masses would congregate in Mexico and force the Mexican government to change their loose policies on their own borders. And if we discontinued trade with Mexico, then the drug highway would all but close. It is not really as complex of an issue as it has been made to appear. The current administration and their media has avoided putting any of the blame on the host country. In the past, we have declared war on countries that have hosted terrorists and manufactured illegal and harmful drugs.

  3. Thanks Mike!
    Joe Biden has beaten America so far down the drain we may never recover.
    I thank GOD each and every day my family doesnt live in a communist infected blue state that supports the horrible policies and complete dereliction of duty the installed white porcelain fixture occupying the Oral Office has bestowed upon our once great nation.

    Our feckless incompetent leader has degraded the office to a low point that any body else would be better….except Kamala.

    • Andy. Oh the humanity! Gas prices today are the lowest since 2020, very low inflation, low unemployment rate. Biden is brokering a ceasefire in the Middle East, he allowed the Willow oil field project to proceed, and he brought billions to improve our infrastructure.

      Meanwhile, Trump thinks he beat Obama in 2016 and congratulates himself for noticing the word “us” has the same letters as U. S.

      • Gas is not cheaper at the pump. Unless you’re stealing it.

        Also, inflation is not “very low”. You must be smoking or snorting some good stuff.

  4. I would have preferred they wait until the field has thinned. Unlikely as it is for anyone to effectively challenge Trump, why not hear them out first?

    My guess is people sense blood in the water and want to get on Trumps hood side. Or risk the blood being theirs.

    Either way, it’s just political performance art.

  5. Meanwhile, the actual endorsements that mean something, Iowa Gov Kim Reynolds and just now, Bob Vander Plaats, is ignored. 🤷‍♂️
    DeSantis is winning Iowa.

  6. Good to see where these Governors loyalty’s lie, it’s definitely not with American Ideals or the US constitution. You are either for America or Donald Trump.
