Gov. Greg Abbott will be in Lubbock on Tuesday to make what his office has described as a "statewide announcement."

Abbott did not hint at what he would announce, though he will be speaking at a Mexican food restaurant in the city and will address "small business and community leaders of the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce." The event begins at 1:30 p.m. Central. We'll be streaming here it live, thanks to our partners at KXAN in Austin.

Video will appear on this page a few minutes before the event begins.
