(FeaturedNews.com) – On Saturday night, former President Donald Trump announced his campaign’s Texas leadership team in a statement released before Trump’s first rally in his 2024 presidential campaign 2024.
While many notable high-level state officials were on Trump’s leadership list, there was one notable absence Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott. The list of Republicans who would lead Trump’s campaign in the state includes Lieutenant Gov. Dan Patrick, Attorney General Ken Paxton, Congressman Ronny Jackson, Congressman Troy Nehls, Congressman Pete Sessions, and others. However, Abbott is not a name on the published list.
Abbott is also believed to not have been present during Trump’s rally in Texas, and Houston Chronicle reporter Jeremy Wallace took to Twitter to write that the governor was scheduled to make an appearance during a border patrol event in Houston. Other notable Republicans not to have made it onto Trump’s campaign leadership team were the two Republican Senators Ted Cruz and John Cornyn.
These absences were quickly noticed by people online with Raconteur Media Vice President Zachery Henry noting that the three men were missing from the Texas leadership team list. It was also pointed out that this is significantly different from the South Carolina leadership which includes both Governor Henry McMaster and Senator Lindsey Graham.
During the Saturday rally, Trump addressed a number of issues, including some jabs made toward Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis who is widely expected to be his biggest challenger in the 2024 GOP primary.
