Greg Abbott

Jews for Sarah Palin Website Launched, About Palin

The Report was in Sunday’s NewsMax email (currently #2 on this page at NewsMax), and the site referred to is, Jews For Sarah Palin. On the subject, I found another site that summarized why Jews hate Palin: “She’s conservative, working-class, and Christian.” How revolting!

Senator John Cornyn recently stated that he is ready to work with legislators on an immigration bill.

Statement on Nomination of Elena Kagan to United States Supreme Court

Today, I released the following statement after President Obama’s nomination of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to replace Justice John Paul Stevens on the U.S. Supreme Court:

Now that President Obama has nominated Solicitor General Elena Kagan to replace Justice John Paul Stevens on the U.S. Supreme Court, the Senate must provide its advice and consent.
