Updated: Abbott appoints Rebeca Huddle of El Paso to the Texas Supreme Court

TLR praises the decision while the Texas Democratic Party says voters should have chosen the next occupant of the seat vacated by Justice Paul Green

Amid criticism from Democrats that he is "stealing” a seat on the state’s highest civil court, Gov. Greg Abbott on Thursday traveled to El Paso to announce the appointment of Rebeca Aizpuru Huddle to the Texas Supreme Court.

Quorum Report readers who have followed this closely will recall that the appointment comes after Justice Paul Green retired at the end of August, one week prior to the deadline for a replacement to be placed on the ballot and face voters during this general election.
