If you think it's crazy that there won't be any voters in the audience for tonight's debate, just wait until you hear that it's taking place in a theater that seats 1,000 people.

It'll be empty—no seats filled—because Abbott refuses to face those he's failed these last 8 years.

Republicans know they cannot survive the glare of accountability Abbott knows he cannot justify his heinous laws against women, his criminal negligence of the power grid and his stunning insouciance toward the devastated Uvalde families
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
I read that Abbott also stipulated that wives not be allowed to attend. What is that about?
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
Hey Beto best of luck tonight. And in case you need another talking point. Seems they don’t want to pay for mental health. Why is that. pic.twitter.com/wA7wBXf94U
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
It's filled with the souls of Texan's murdered by gun violence. This is Abott's way of acknowledging them.
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
Gov Abbott is afraid to face the people and parents of Uvalde
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
What a sniveling coward Greg Abbott is!
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
Wonder if that might, like, come up in the debate tonight? Don’t matter, we’ll be cheering like crazy at home, you’ll feel it!
 
It’s an absolute disgrace, and it also means @BetoORourke that he can feel the tectonic shift that is happening in Texas. LFG!
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
It’s okay to call him a coward for being afraid to face voters…
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
I watched the debate. Superior win Beto, hands down! You made it about the people, the families, the truth thank you from Encino, California
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
Great debate tonight, Beto! While living in Texas - I met you in Amarillo, travel to Austin to see you with Willie and watched every debate you've had along the way. This felt different. That state needs you! Vote Texas VOTE!
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
What’s the point of a debate without an audience?
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
We’ll be watching the Texas Tribune live stream. 🌊🗳🤟 pic.twitter.com/9ms4hmxxnn
 
This is the behavior of someone who cares more about himself than the needs of voters.

Not allowing an audience, including Uvalde grieving parents, is a disservice & a disgrace.

Abbott is a self serving coward.

Vote for Beto O'Rourke.
 
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
Debate him like a man, Beto. Stop trying to drop help with optics. You’re afraid of Him and it shows.
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
Aw! Poor Robert can’t bring his paid actors. What’s a fraud to do now?
 
 
Damn… Dark Beto… I like it..
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
we all know it was Abbott who didn’t want an audience at the debate - it doesn’t mean Beto shouldn’t agree to it. We also know that Beto has proposed several debates, but Abbott refused.
 
LOL losers don't get to decide the terms of the debate, Francis.
 
Greg Abbott is a coward, bought and paid for by the gun and oil lobbies. Turn him out. Vote for Beto.
 
This is like The Rock vs. Mankind in an empty arena

(except with very real life stakes come election time, so please please please, Texas, vote for Beto)
 
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
Does anyone know if this will streamed?
 
Just a few more minutes until debate night. I'm rooting for the guy who isn't afraid to talk to constituents. #Beto #BetoForGovernor

We are descending on your Twitter to Live tweet BETO we are going to blow up your Twitter algorithm in a good way- KICKA** tonight- He deserves it! pic.twitter.com/Id5TcYQxWu
 
 
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
🤣🤣🤣🤣 I wouldn’t debate an idiot like you either, it’s a waste of time
 
Nah having no audience for debates is very based
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
No Beto. It’s because you democrats cheat at every opportunity and cannot be trusted. Who knows what shenanigans you had planned with the audience
 
Abbott and his henchmen demanded that here be no audience in tonight's debate.
Abbott continues to cower and hide from Texans every day. That's not leadership. . . 😒

In reply to @BetoORourke
The real question is why are both of you excluding @Mark4Gov ?
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
is a pathetic coward. Corrupt. Gutless. Heartless. And afraid to face the very constituents that he's screwed over the years.
 
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
Unreal. @GregAbbott_TX is a coward. We know this tho. The guns always give it away.
 
#BetoforGovernor2022 @BetoORourke I live in CA and would gladly put a Beto sign in my yard! #TXGovDebate #GoBlue
 
Was that one of his requirements to participate???
 
 
I honestly think that @GregAbbott_TX is running scared.
 
This, above all else, tells you all you need to know to be an informed TX voter ⤵️
 
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
Go gettum tiger!!! 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌
 
Abbott is a coward!
 
 
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
We gotta ya- I’ll be watching a supporting Our Governor Beto O'Rourke. #BetoforGovernor2022
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
That's because he's got nothing to say. Go Beto!
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
I support you, Beto, but I’m not watching. I can’t even stand to watch Abbott, a fascist-adjacent Trump-supporting white nationalist-pandering billionaire-protecting liar who is just going to shovel a bunch of BS. Anyway, good luck with the “debate.”
 
The Republicans live in fear of their lies and failures! They just rely on their dark money ads to put them on top! @BetoORourke
 
 
We can't fill the seat so let's donate $$ and watch this debate. BetoForTexas.com #BetoForGovernor
 
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
GET HIS COWARDLY ASS BETO
 
 
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
Greg Abbott is a violent "extremist-christian" (anti-women's rights/anti-gay rights/anti-trans rights). Greg Abbott has no morals and no sense of right and wrong. Vote for Democrat Beto O'Rourke for Governor of Texas to protect women's basic human rights.
 
Clearly @GovAbbott is a coward who knows the more his lies and ineptitude are exposed the more likely it is he will lose. #BetoforGovernor2022 #BetoForTexas #BetoForABetterTexas #AbbottFailsTexasEveryday #AbbottFailedTexas
 
 
 
 
 
FACT CHECK: TRUE
 
I still think Abbot will be a no show and insisted on no audience so Beto couldn't answer people's questions in his absence.

They really need to prepare for a call in show back up.
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
Think twice before turning Texas Blue👇 #SayNoToBeto twitter.com/ClownWorld_/st…
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
It should be held in a smaller place for sure if Abbott is too cowardly to face an audience, but at least that's 1000 fewer people sharing Covid air.
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
says a lot about Abbott without saying a word and it's not good
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
Why even bother booking a theatre when a conference room would have been enough? Seems like a waste of taxpayer money to me...
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
What a waste of space and electricity when it could have been done in a conference room at the state Capitol
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
Y'all could have done that on a Zoom. #AbbottisAfraid
 
The @GOP want to RULE, not govern!
Everywhere they have power they use it to remove the rights of others.
If they get more power, they will get much worse!
#VoteTheGOPOut LOCAL/STATE/FED because we cannot trust them with our lives or our democracy! #VoteBlue
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
That's so shameful of him
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
Watching from the east coast!!
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
Will be tuning in from NC! Go, Beto, go!
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
Good luck tonight!! 🦾💙🌊🦾💙🌊
 
 
 
 
Not one of the local Channels are showing the debate between Beto and Abbott not even the local PBS. And we wonder why we are losing our Democracy.
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
GOOD LUCK TONIGHT!! Get him!!
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
Everyone around the country, knows @GregAbbott_TX is a coward

In reply to @BetoORourke
Failed, he's sending all those illegals to sanctuary cities. That's a win, you'll never have a failed democrap govener, move to CA, they have what your mind needs
 
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
Abbott is afraid and that's why he didn't wanted people there so they would boo him with his stupid answers that he was saying yesterday night while Beto O'Rourke was answering all the questions they ask him to answer so I'm voting for Beto O'Rourke period!!!
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
Everyone is waiting for you to eviscerate him
