テキサス州政府. グレッグ・アボット has been reelected for a third term in office after months of contestation over his response to the May 24 ロブ小学校での撮影 ユヴァルデの, テキサス, that left 21 死んだ人.

Abbott defeated his Democratic challenger ベト・オルーク in what the ダラスモーニングニュース has reported になる 60.27% majority vote across all 14 Uvalde County precincts.

While Abbott has been a frontrunner in Uvalde County in both of his previous elections, the Texas governor faced criticism regarding his lack of transparency and inability to enact change in gun control policy following the deadliest school shooting in his state.

Community members and loved ones of the deceased campaigned for O’Rourke’s election for months following the tragedy, calling for the minimum age to purchase a semi-automatic rifle to change from 18 years old to 21 年. This was largely in part to the Uvalde shooter purchasing two legal weapons after his 18th birthday, KUT 90.5 レポート.

月曜日に, Texas state Sen. Roland Gutierrez released call logs between Abbott and Texas DPS from the day of the shooting.

According to Gutierrez, Abbott had three calls from the state’s DPS director after 18-year-old gunman Salvador Ramos entered the school through an open back door at 11:33 午前. Gutierrez reported that the first went out after 4 午後, the next at 5 午後, and the last at 8:41 午後.

It’s the lack of importance that he placed on the communications between home and his top cop. A 7-minute call, a 6-minute call, goes to a fundraiser, collects 60 grand and then makes another longer call, 18 分,” グティエレス told KHOU 11.

During a press conference following the May tragedy, Abbott expressed that the situationcould’ve been worse.

According to Abbott, “The reason it was not worse is because law enforcement officials did what they do. They showed amazing courage by running toward gunfire for the singular purpose of trying to save lives. It is a fact that because of their quick response, getting on the scene, being able to respond to the gunman, and eliminate the gunman, they were able to save lives. 不幸にも, not enough.
