AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - It’s going to be a low-key Election Day for Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.

Spokesman John Wittman said Monday the governor already cast his ballot during early voting and plans spending Tuesday night watching election returns from the governor’s mansion.

Abbott originally endorsed Ted Cruz for president but has been quieter about the White House race since the Texas senator dropped out. He’s backing Donald Trump but hasn’t campaigned for the Republican nominee.

Abbott was spending the eve of the Election Day at a Republican rally in San Antonio. Also scheduled to attend was congressman Will Hurd, who’s in a competitive race and has said he won’t vote for Trump.

Abbott also campaigned for local judges in Houston last month.
