Landtroop is running against Incumbent Joe Hefline for the District 85 State Representative seat. Abbott says Landtroop shares his views on health care reform and other issues.

The Attorney General has joined with several other states in a lawsuit that challenges the constitutionality of the Affordable Health Care Act approved by President Obama.
