Mothers Against Greg Abbott have raised $75,000 to erect sixteen billboards advocating for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke, the first five of which went up in August, as reported by Texas Monthly.
The PAC said it will continue to fund-raise money for signage and ads with various pro-Beto, anti-Abbott messaging in the lead-up to the election in November.
