After shooting, The Race For a new Texas Governor is rapidly coming to its end



By: Connie Cao


The election for a new governor has become much more heated following several tragedies and difficulties. The Texas shooting is likely the event that changed the course of history.


One of the bloodiest shootings in American history was the one in Texas. It is challenging to deal with Texans after the shooting that killed many. According to The New York Times, this affected American politician Gov. Greg Abbot and increased competition for the position of governor since the 1990s.


The contest is getting closer, according to the polls. The poll currently puts Mr. Abbot, an incumbent, and Beto O' Rouke, a congressman running for the Democratic party, in a single-digit race. Beto has raised more money for his campaign than Mr. Abbot, at $27.6 million to $24.9 million, respectively.


The Uvalde school shooting left 19 students and two teachers dead. The Dobbs v. Jackson Women Health Organization abortion decision was reinstated in 1925. The organization is a decision made by the U.S. supreme court to combat with abortion rights.


Gun regulation became a significant concern for other demographics, including Hispanic women.


Additionally, the shooting victims' families demanded that the voting be completed. According to The New York Times, during a march held in support of the victims, Mr. O'Rouke addressed the crowd while they chanted, "Vote them Out!"
