Don't mess with Texas elections.

That's the double-down message Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott delivered Thursday to international poll watchers who want to come and observe voting on Election Day.

The squabble started after Abbott wrote to the Organization for Security and Co-Operation in Europe, threatening to prosecute any of its members who come within 100 feet of a polling location in violation of state law.

The group calls Abbott's threat "unacceptable" in a letter to the State Department. Abbott on Thursday tweeted his response: "BRING IT."

The State Department says it has received reassurance from the OSCE that it will follow state election laws.
