FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – As expected, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott jumped out to a large lead over his Republican rivals in the GOP primary and cruised to victory Tuesday night, March 1. Abbott paid little attention during the campaign to retired Lt. Col. Allen West, the former Texas GOP chairman and Florida congressman, and former State Sen. Don Huffines of Dallas. Abbott will face former Congressman and former presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke, who is also on his way to victory, in the November general election.

Senator Huffines was kind enough to take forty minutes to talk about his gubernatorial race. With a race of this magnitude forty minutes is not long enough to discuss all issues, and with his plans on his web page the interview was designed to get a little more insight on his main campaign goals, and then look at some other issues facing Harris County rather than to rehash what is already publicly available.
