(LifeSiteNews) — Pro-life Texas Gov. Greg Abbott crushed pro-abortion, pro-LGBT opponent Beto O’Rourke on Tuesday night.

64-year-old Abbott won his third term with 55 percent of the vote as of Wednesday morning. The Associated Press has called the race for Abbott, who has consistently defended the right to life and opposed the chemical and genital mutilation of children.

O’Rourke, a former congressman, previously failed to unseat Sen. Ted Cruz in 2018, lost in the 2020 Democratic presidential primaries, and has now been rejected again by Lone Star voters.

O’Rourke supported the chemical and genital mutilation of children and supported abortion through all nine months of pregnancy. He picked former Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards, the daughter of former Texas governor Ann Richards, to lead fundraising efforts for him.

The Republican Governor’s Association (RGA) released a statement following news of Abbott’s victory, with RGA Co-Chairs Governors Doug Ducey (R-AZ) and Pete Ricketts (R-NE) saying “Governor Greg Abbott has fought tirelessly to grow Texas’ economy, give parents more say in their child’s education, support law enforcement, and defend the Lone Star State with incredible adversity in the face of the Biden Border Crisis.”

“Texas and the entire nation owe a great debt to Governor Abbott’s leadership, and we couldn’t be more grateful to see him re-elected for four more years tonight,” the statement added.

Abbott thanked Texans for re-electing him.

“Thank you my fellow Texans. I will work every day to earn the trust you have placed in me. Together we will ensure Texas is exceptional. God Bless Texas,” Abbott tweeted.
