Fox News reported on the story here:
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, announced in a social media post on Sunday that he is "proud to endorse" former President Donald Trump for the 2024 presidential nomination.
"Today, I am proud to endorse Donald J. Trump for President," Abbott said in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter. "Now more than ever, America needs a President who will secure the border and prioritize national security. President Trump is the clear choice to get the job done."
The former president joined the governor in Edinburg, Texas on Sunday for Abbott’s annual pre-Thanksgiving tradition of serving tamales to Texas Department of Public Safety troopers and Texas National Guardsmen deployed along the southern border under the governor’s Operation Lone Star program.
The visit is intended to spotlight the combustible issue of illegal immigration and border security.

The Hill shares more on the story:
Trump could be seen posing for photos and shaking hands with the servicemembers on Sunday. After handing out food, Abbott and Trump headed outside the airport hanger to speak to a group of supporters.
Trump has previously made trips to the border while a presidential candidate and during his time in the White House. His campaign has kept up a strong focus on immigration and the border, as has Abbott’s administration.
Abbott has stepped up his border and immigration policies in Texas during the Biden administration by flying migrants to Democratic-led cities, installing a razor-wire fence and establishing “Operation Lone Star,” the state’s migrant deterrence policy.
Democratic National Committee (DNC) spokesperson Sarafina Chitika released a statement criticizing Abbott’s endorsement of Trump.
“Donald Trump and his campaign are capping off a horrendous week trying to run away from his cruel and inhumane record by picking up the support of a similarly cruel governor who uses human beings as political pawns,” Chitika said.
“With the support of MAGA acolyte Greg Abbott, Trump has earned another cheerleader for his extreme plans to ban abortion nationwide, pursue a disastrous immigration agenda, and make us less safe by flooding our communities with more guns. Abbott’s support will do nothing to help Trump with the voters who have rejected his toxic MAGA agenda time and time again,” Chitika continued.
It's time that the GOP primary ends and everyone rallies behind President Trump.
There is no contest, the other 'candidates' have already lost miserably.
