One of the more interesting changes in the Bitcoin landscape over the past year has been the fact certain politicians started accepting Bitcoin payments for donations. It looks like this may finally start paying off, as Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has a sizable lead over the opposition in the race for Governor of Texas.
In the event of Mr. Abbott winning the election, he would become one of the first governors winning an election after accepting donations in Bitcoin. As a Bitcoin enthusiast, I can only hope these donations will lead to continued support from Mr. Abbott when he is in the Governor’s office. Whether or not this will be the case is up in their though.
