AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has released personal tax returns that show the Republican gubernatorial candidate earning about $200,000 annually since 2010. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has released personal tax returns that show the Republican gubernatorial candidate earning about $200,000 annually since 2010.

But the filings Abbott released Friday to The Associated Press do not reflect millions of tax-exempt dollars made from a settlement following his 1984 accident that left him paralyzed from the waist down. Abbott is the early favorite to succeed Gov. Rick Perry in 2014.

Abbott has made more than $5 million and counting from suing the owner of a tree that fell on him while jogging as a young law student.

In an interview with AP, Abbott would not commit to releasing earlier tax returns. He says those he's making public "covers a solid background" since his last political campaign.
