Actor and all around macho man Chuck Norris, Walker Texas Ranger himself, parachuted into San Antonio today to speak out in support of Republican Greg Abbott's campaign for governor, Newsradio 1200 WOAI's Michael Main reports.
"As a celebrity we can bring a few more people out to hear the message that General Abbott gives, and then they can make the decision," Norris said.
Abbott said he'll take Walker Texas Ranger's backing any day.
"He really cares about the future of Texas and the outcome of this race," Abbott said of Norris, 74, who was born in Oklahoma but grew up in Texas.
Norris says he likes Abbott's style.
"We have got to secure the border," he said. "Then we can start implementing the immigration path that people need."
Abbott joked that he is adding two words to his border security plan.
