TEXAS — Gov.

Greg Abbott on Tuesday reiterated that he is not retiring from office.

Abbott, a Republican, was one of the few Republican governors in the country to endorse Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and said he plans to run for the Senate in Texas.

Abbot told reporters after a meeting of the Texas Republican Party that he has made it clear to his top staff he is interested in a Senate run, according to a news release.

He added that he will run again, although the date of that race has not been determined.

Abbey did not say when he planned to announce his bid, but in the past he has been clear that he intends to run.

Abboud has repeatedly said he would run again.

In a Facebook post Tuesday morning, he called himself a proud Texan, a proud Republican and a proud father.

Abdallah al-Dahhi, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, said Abbott’s departure from office is not a sign of a more conservative administration.

“Abbott has made clear that this was a very challenging and difficult time in Texas and he is proud to have served as governor and will continue to do so,” he said.

Abdullah, who took office in January after a three-year term, has led a coalition of conservative lawmakers and conservative governors in Texas that have opposed abortion restrictions, which include bans on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and restrictions on Medicaid funding for abortions.

Abram, who was the first openly gay governor in the nation, also opposed the Affordable Care Act, the healthcare law President Donald Trump signed that created the federal government.

Abdiqibaidah, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, is now executive director of the Center for Global Health and Global Policy, which is backed by conservative donors.
