He was tapped by Gov. Greg Abbott to serve as 110th Secretary of State of Texas. After two years, however, he announced that he would step down. His resignation went into effect in January of this year.“I’m sure people will come after me,” he said of having stepped away from two offices. But, he said, he intends to run “an issue-oriented, clean campaign.”Want the whole story? Pick up a copy of the Port Isabel-South Padre Press, or subscribe to our E-Edition by clicking here.
