      Greg Abbott campaigns in Amarillo

      Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott stopped at Oliver??s Saddle Shop on Plains Wednesday.

      The Texas Attorney General greeted and spoke with supporters that packed the store.

      Abbott says the business is an excellent example of the influence of small business on the state??s economy.

      He says if he??s elected he??ll work to make further changes to the state??s education system. "What we got into was way too many standardized tests.?? Too much teaching to the test.?? House Bill 5 was a step in the right direction.?? We have more to go so teachers can be freed up to truly educate our kids as opposed to just going to the classroom and teaching to the test."

      Abbott says the state needs to create multiple educational pathways for kids.
