"Like FATHER Like DAUGHTER. One thing about the Governor that is a constant is his attention to detail, so when @abi_kd came to visit her Dad in his office last year, I saw in a split second how they both without saying anything to each other immediately noticed that certain things weren’t in the right place on his office table and together started to fix it, and made sure it was organized and in my head, at that moment I’m like the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree.he loves everything being neat, organized and clean. If he sees a piece of thread on the floor when passing he’ll stop and pick it up."
