Back in October, Abbott – who earlier this year proposed a number of constitutional amendments targeting LGBT rights – tweeted “I don’t believe in curses or jinks. But just in case they really work: Congratulations @HillaryClinton.”

However, following Trump’s win last week, Abbott shared his original tweet with the comment “Holy cow. It looks like this worked.”

Holy cow indeed.
Last year, Abbott was vocal in his opposition to Houston’s Equal Rights Ordinance. In June 2015, Abbott staged a signing ceremony for the “Pastor Protection Act,” which was championed by anti-LGBT groups but merely reaffirmed existing protections under state and federal law.
