Greg Abbott Wants Rick Perry’s Job [VIDEO]

In 1984, Greg Abbott was minding his own business by jogging down a street, when suddenly his life was changed forever.  Being struck by a tree that cracked, then toppled on his back, Abbott’s back was crushed, forever putting him in a wheelchair.

Now, 29 years later, at the age of 55, Abbott’s life is about to change again.  Calling the ’84 accident one that gave him “a spine of steel”, He has recently announced his candidacy for Governor of Texas, as Rick Perry will be stepping down after this term.

Without getting too political, and because he is the perceived front-runner, his foes, both Republican and Democrat, say he is not only on the inside with the Capitol gang, but values policy hurting the working class.

But on a stifling day in San Antonio, where the thermometer closed in on 100 degrees, Abbott supporters were plentiful, and gave a nod of approval when he played “small ball” with his speech.  One that hailed gun rights, anti-abortion, and keeping government small.

In that last regard, Abbott wasted no time suing the Feds over Obamacare, one day after being signed into law.  He also won the fight, by a 5 to 4 U.S. Supreme Court vote, to keep a statue of the Ten Commandments on the Capitol lawn.

Now that Abbott has danced the first dance, look for others in the political sphere to join the fight, and let the mud slinging begin.

But…we really don’t mind mud here in Texas…do we?
