Attorney General Greg Abbott weighed in on the abortion issue Thursday during a campaign stop in Austin.
Abbott announced his run for governor last Sunday.
He spoke one-on-one with KXAN about his candidacy and also the future of the new abortion restrictions signed into law this week at the State Capitol.
"Now, that it passed out of the legislature, it goes into court, where I will be representing the state of Texas in court," Abbott said. "I do think the U.S. Supreme Court - which is where this case probably will wind up - can reconcile both Roe v. Wade and this law."
Abbott also spoke about the need for more teachers in the state and whether Governor Perry will endorse him.
KXAN's full interview airs on this week's "In Session. In-depth." Sunday morning at 8:30.
