AUSTIN - Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott On Tuesday advised the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe - a United Nations partner - that groups and individuals from outside the United States do not have jurisdiction to interfere with Texas elections.

The Attorney General's letter comes after the international group - comprised of 56 members including EU nations and other countries such as Albania, Azerbaijan, Cyprus, Estonia, Kazakhstan, Latvia, the Russian Federation, Slovenia and Turkey - announced they would be sending election observers to sites throughout the United States, including Texas, on Election Day.
