Maybe they can find MORE votes for President Biden like what happened in Maricopa County in Arizona?

Abbott defended his state’s decision to review the results of the 2020 election, saying that it has nothing to do with Trump. Rather, he said the audits would be conducted out of “a responsibility to ensure the integrity of and confidence in the elections in the state of Texas.”
