Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and his wife state Sen. Angela Paxton fled Texas last Wednesday to Utah to avoid frigid temperatures during the winter storm.
Paxton’s spokesperson told the Houston Chronicle that he went to the state for a “previously planned meeting” with Utah’s AG Sean Reyes to discuss a lawsuit against Google.
But the spokesperson “could not provide additional details or the specific reasons on the need for the meeting concerning Google as it involves an ongoing investigation.”
Paxton is the latest Republican known to have left the state last week during the deadly winter weather.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz boarded a flight with is family to Cancun while his constituents struggled to survive amid freezing temperatures.
State Rep. Gary Gates hopped on his private jet to Florida after his home lost power, last Wednesday.
