Inside the Greg Abbott Political Machine, Why Abbott Never Worried About Beto Y'all-itics

    • Politics

It wasn’t even close. In this episode, we go inside the Greg Abbott campaign and ask ‘how did you do it?’ Dave Carney, Abbott’s long-time political consultant who also worked for the first President Bush and former Texas governor Rick Perry, pulls back the curtain on Abbott’s winning campaign. Carney tells Y’all-itics why he never worried about Beto O’Rourke, how *he* would have managed Beto’s campaign differently, why there’s only one gubernatorial debate, the good and bad of polling, why the independent voter wields the real power, and how Abbott’s team knows exactly who to target with political ads. And to top it off, Carney says they already started work on Abbott’s 2026 gubernatorial campaign. 2026. Seriously. This is an ‘Ask Me Anything’ with one of the GOP’s veteran consultants.
