ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Texas Attorney General and Gubernatorial Candidate, Greg Abbott made a stop in Angelina County on Tuesday.
Abbott and his team are in East Texas to speak with state representatives and local business leaders about the importance of job growth in the area.
Something Abbott said is his number one priority for East Texas.
"The first goal I want to achieve in East Texas, which is part of where I grew up in Longview, Texas, is to make sure that we continue to grow jobs," Abbott said.
"Texas ranks number one for jobs in the nation right now, I want to make sure that Texas remains number one for jobs, but also that East Texas in particular gets to benefit from that job growth," Abbott said.
Abbott is meeting with Representative Trent Ashby and the local business leaders Tuesday night and will be heading back to Austin later this week.
