Rep. Tony Gonzales, who represents Uvalde, mentioned Beto O’Rourke’s outburst all through Gov. Greg Abbot’s update on the Texas capturing was “spewing rhetoric and hate” when the group requires unity.

“It’s unfortunate to see politicians attempt to capitalize politically off of the dying of harmless children,” Gonzales, a Republican, informed WHD News.

“Not right now. Not these days,” he continued. “This is about therapeutic.”

Abbott, a Republican, spoke for approximately 10 minutes right before he tried to give Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick the ground. But O’Rourke, a previous U.S. consultant running for governor, approached the stage and interrupted.

Portions of the Democrat’s outburst have been inaudible, though he accused Abbott of “performing nothing” to curb gun accessibility and termed the governor’s reaction “thoroughly predictable.” O’Rourke was escorted out of the auditorium soon after a brief trade with numerous officers on phase.
