HOUSTON (AP) - The stage at a Houston honky-tonk has a wheelchair ramp. At another rally, Greg Abbott's aides lay plywood boards on the ground to make a smooth path over wet grass. Other stops have no speaking platform, making it hard for standing crowds to see the candidate at all.

It's another day on the campaign trail for Abbott, the longtime Texas attorney general who is paralyzed from the waist down, as he tells voters his personal and political story from a wheelchair in his bid to succeed Gov. Rick Perry.
