Texas attorney general left state for Utah during historic winter storm

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton left for Utah last week while the people of his state were still feeling the effects of a historic winter storm.

Paxton’s campaign spokesman, Ian Prior, told the Dallas Morning News for a report published on Monday that his boss went to Utah on Wednesday in order to meet with the state’s attorney general to discuss an antitrust lawsuit that several states are pursuing against Google and observe a police training program.

“I cannot further share additional details or the specific reasons on the need for the meeting concerning Google as it involves an ongoing investigation,” Prior added.
