I don't think it's intentional means of voter intimidation, but as Todd said yesterday, some voters may feel intimidated, and some may feel motivated by their presence being deployed.

Does sound like an accurate assessment to me.
Being intimidated because some TXNG guys are somewhere in the area is extremely irrational. We should not base logical decisions on irrational fears.

Nothing about this smells in the slightest way like voter intimidation or any other kind of nefarious plot. It smells like Abbot doesn’t want to see Texas cities burning because the Antifatards lose their shit if they don’t get what they want on ejection night.

I have to agree with Todd and how he said it. For some voters, they might see it as intimidation, while for some voters, motivation.

And I'm sure some of the left leaning radicals may try to present such a deployment as voter intimidation. The like to say rioting and looting are peaceful protesting too!

Some will chose to feel intimidated no matter what anyone says or does. Some bitch about a free steak dinner to.
What nobody has bothered to mention. What if Abbott is just not talking about some plausible threats exactly so people won't be intimidated by them and just wants to be ready?
Kind of makes you wonder.......

I never said it was voter intimidation, but some may think if they are deployed, might think it was a form of voter intimidation. There is huge difference. Something actually happening, and some thinking something that never existed in any way.

In no way do I consider deploying TNG as a deterrent to violent riots in any way voter intimidation. I understand the reasoning or thought process as to why.
