AUSTIN (AP) - Republican candidate for governor Greg Abbott has called for greater protections for personal information, including public records, health information and DNA sequences.

The Texas attorney general told supporters in Corpus Christi on Tuesday that he would fight to pass laws making it harder to acquire such information and make DNA a personal property right.

Abbott is the leading Republican candidate for governor and laying out his policy positions in speeches across the state. His main opponents in the March primary are Tom Pauken and Lisa Fritsch.

While he called for a public debate over devices such as red light cameras, he said elected officials needed to reveal more about themselves and their campaigns.

Abbott said elected officials need to reveal more information about their income, and their family members.
