The Texas Deer Association (TDA) is proud to announce that Texas Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott will be a honored guest during the 15th Annual Texas Deer Association Convention & Fundraiser. The convention will be held on August 15, 2013, through August 17, 2013, at the JW Marriott Hill Country Resort & Spa in San Antonio, Texas. Abbott is scheduled to address the attendees on the morning of Saturday, Aug. 17th, at 10:30 a.m.
A native Texan, Greg Abbott was reelected as the 50th Attorney General of Texas in November 2010. He has been only the second Republican to hold that post since Reconstruction. Prior to his election as attorney general, Abbott served as a Justice on the Texas Supreme Court and as a State District Judge in Harris County. As the state’s chief law enforcement official, Attorney General Abbott has made protecting children and family values the focus of his administration. Last month, Abbott announced his bid to succeed Gov. Rick Perry, who is not seeking a fourth term.
“We’re very excited to welcome Attorney General Greg Abbott to the Texas Deer Association’s 15th annual convention,” says Karl Kinsel, Executive Director for the Texas Deer Association. “General Abbott has a long and respected reputation for serving the State of Texas and for supporting traditional values, protecting the Second Amendment and defending states’ rights. With his recent announcement to run for governor, our members and attendees will certainly want to hear his positions on the many issues facing Texans today.”
