Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thehill.com: “Texas attorney general and wife went to Utah amid winter storm crisis”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) and his wife, state Sen. Angela Paxton (R), travelled to Utah last Wednesday as brutal winter storms in their home state left scores dead and millions without power.

Paxton’s spokesman Ian Prior told The Houston Chronicle that he left to meet with his counterpart in Utah, Attorney General Sean Reyes (R), for a “previously planned meeting" to discuss issues including a multi-state antitrust lawsuit against Google.

“While there, AG Paxton had a number of meetings with the Utah Attorney General over the course of several days,” Prior told the Chronicle. “I cannot further share additional details or the specific reasons on the need for the meeting concerning Google as it involves an ongoing investigation.”

The spokesman also said that Paxton had not lost power at his home and had not left the state until most households had power again. The Chronicle notes, however, that more than 2 million Texan households were still without power Wednesday evening.

Paxton is now the third Texas politician known to have left the state in the midst of widespread power outages caused by the freezing temperatures.
