Support for Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott is so strong that even his Democrat opponent’s former employees are getting behind his re-election campaign.

The Dallas County Sheriff’s Association recently announced that they’re endorsing Governor Abbott, even though the group worked for Democrat gubernatorial nominee Lupe Valdez for “more than 12 years.” In making their endorsement, the Dallas County Sheriff’s Association cited Abbott’s “support…for law enforcement” and “track record of outstanding leadership.”

The endorsement is further proof of the overwhelming popularity of Governor Abbott’s results-driven governance with Texans.

The Dallas County Sheriff’s Association, spurning their former boss, has endorsed Gov. Greg Abbott for re-election this November over his opponent, Lupe Valdez, who resigned as sheriff in December after more than 12 years on the job. 

‘We are extremely thankful for the support he’s shown over the years for law enforcement both as attorney general and as governor,’ Sgt. Chris Dyer, president of the DCSA, said at an afternoon news conference in Dallas.

Abbott, who grew up in Duncanville, said he has been a strong supporter of law enforcement since receiving a college scholarship from the Duncanville Police Department.  ‘Little did they know they were investing in a person who would go on to become a judge, attorney general and now governor,’ Abbott said. ‘My connection to law enforcement has been strong ever since then.”

Dyer, a 31-year veteran of the department, said the association believed Abbott had ‘the track record of outstanding leadership and was the person most qualified for the job.
