The governor, however, doesn't regret the veto threat.
“I stood up for the rule of law in the state of Texas," he said on "Fox News Sunday" according to Politico. "And if I had to do it again, I would make exactly the same decision.”
He insisted that the public had "lost confidence" in Lehmberg.
“I very clearly, I very publicly, said as long as that individual was running that agency, I had lost confidence in her, the public had lost confidence in her,” he said.
