Losing His Grip on Power, Abbott Seeks to Suppress Vote

In response to Gov. Greg Abbott’s sudden order limiting drop-off locations for mail-in votes to one per county, Texas AFL-CIO President Rick Levy issued this statement:

All working families need to know about our power to change Texas at the polls is today’s attempt by Gov. Greg Abbott to rig his own rules at the 11th hour to suppress the vote. Poll after poll shows Republicans losing their decades-old grip on power. Abbott’s desperate order must not stand and working families will not stand for it. In the most important election of our lives, working families will vote in record numbers no matter what Abbott says or does.
