McALLEN, Texas (KXAN) — Fresh off announcing he will seek a second term in office, Gov. Greg Abbott visited McAllen Saturday to kick off some door-to-door campaigning.

He and his wife took part in a Super Saturday Block Walk. Volunteers were expected to knock on 10,000 doors across the state to raise awareness for his re-election campaign.

Election Day will be in November 2018.

Gov. Abbott has a campaign war chest of nearly $40 million, virtually ensuring he can outspend any other Texas politician.

So far, Democrats have not announced a challenger in the gubernatorial race.
