Texas AFL-CIO President Rick Levy issued this statement on the reelection of incumbent Greg Abbott as Texas Governor:

Lupe Valdez campaigned courageously against enormous odds to post the best result for a Democratic candidate for Governor in a generation. She achieved that success by running as a champion of a Fair Shot agenda for working families. Lupe Valdez has one of the greatest hearts we have seen in Texas politics. We are proud of her campaign, but we are even prouder to call her a friend.
