At a recent event in San Antonio, Beto O’Rourke posed the question “What if the best jobs in America were created right here in Texas?” As it turns out, they are – over 13 million of them.
As announced by Governor Greg Abbott last week, Texas has set an all-time record for employment with over 13 million jobs, surpassing all previous records and marking jobs gains in 19 of the last 20 months.
“Under Governor Greg Abbott’s leadership, Texas has just set an all-time record for employment and remains one of the best states to live, work, and raise a family,” said RGA spokesperson Joanna Rodriguez. “If Beto O’Rourke wants to talk about jobs on the campaign trail, he should at least tell voters the truth about how his and Joe Biden’s reckless economic policies would not only kill Texas jobs, but also continue to increase prices of gas and essential goods across the state.”
