Gov. Greg Abbott endorsed state House Rep. Ellen Troxclair Friday in her bid for reelection, telling an overflow crowd he needs her support to continue his work to protect the Texas border.

“We need your help to return Ellen to Austin, so she can help me secure our borders,” Abbott said to large applause at The Bevy Hotel.
