Whatever his future political plans, Attorney General Greg Abbott has more than enough money in his war chest to launch a formidable campaign.

Finance Director Sarah Whitley announced Tuesday he’s raised nearly $5 million in just the last two weeks. As of the January filing period, Abbott has about $18 million in the bank. These latest totals would bring that to nearly $23 million. 

Most expect that Abbott will run for governor. Gov. Rick Perry’s announcement earlier this week seemed to solidify those plans. Abbott has not made any official announcement, but he is set to embark on a five-city meet and greet campaign this weekend. It is possible he could make his plans known then.
