Earlier he enforced some voting laws that kept the democrats from stealing the election in Texas. The democrats here in Houston screamed like they’d been electrocuted when he did that. He’s had the AG go after some of the smaller fraudsters that were trying to steal the election here.
He was called all sorts of names for lifting the COVID restrictions completely when he did. You can argue he was to restrictive on the Covid Lockdowns, but he began lifting them far earlier than most.
In February 2020 we really didn’t have any idea what was going to happen. There was legitimate cause for concern at that time. It is easy to complain with 20/20 hindsight. He played it safe and it was probably a smart move. The eased up incrementally. That’s a far better policy than what happened in California, Michigan, or Ewwwww Yuck.
He has a pretty solid record at this point. Where I would offer criticism is his handling of ERCOT. He should have them in stocks, publicly displayed for people to throw rotten vegetables at.
