So much for the macho man Abbott. After the Sante Fe Shooting, Andrew White, candidate for Governor, tweeted a picture of Abbott’s raffle of a shotgun for his campaign.
If nominated on May 22, I won’t have to give away shotguns to get people to vote for me.

Abbott has since canceled the raffle and will instead give a $250 gift card. From Politico:
“I find this giveaway deeply disturbing for a number of reasons, chiefly among them the fact that Friday’s shooting at Santa Fe HS was carried out with a shotgun,” Jack Kappelman, a student organizer of Austin’s March For Our Lives affiliate, wrote in an email to POLITICO.
So White came. And he took it.
