Colt McCoy introduces Abbott at campaign stop in Austin

Posted: Updated:

Attorney General Greg Abbott made a campaign stop in Austin Thursday and got a little help with a notable name in UT football.

He appeared with former UT quarterback Colt McCoy at a meet and greet event in downtown Austin.

His speech was similar to the one he made in Houston earlier this week, with many of the same talking points. Abbott spoke of his accomplishments as attorney general, including cracking down on human trafficking and fighting against Obamacare.

He says no one has put the phrase "Don't mess with Texas" into action as much as he has.

"And when Barack Obama tried to start making Texas more like big Washington D.C. and California-style politics, and expanding government and intruding upon our liberty, I fought back with 27 lawsuits, telling Obama, 'No, don't mess with Texas!'" Abbott said.

Abbott is running for governor next year, and says if he's elected he wants to cut taxes on small businesses, reform the education system and secure the border.
