Republican Party of Texas to Hold State Convention Online

Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey said, “The State Republican Executive Committee voted this (Monday) evening to move our State Convention online.

“We thank our incredible team of attorneys for their valiant work exhausting all legal remedies fighting the partisan Democrat shutdown of our in-person Convention over the last several days.  

“We have had a wonderful start to our State Convention week in Houston with the Temporary Rules, Platform, and Legislative Priorities Committees meeting in-person. We look forward to continuing our important work this week in an online convention, including adopting our Platform, electing our Party officers, electing our National Delegates and Alternates and the pinnacle moment of electing the Presidential Electors who will proudly cast Texas’ 38 electoral votes for President Donald J. Trump!”

Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:

“The Texas Democratic Party applauds Mayor Turner for standing firm and ensuring that common-sense and advice from science and medical professionals take precedence over the whims of a declining party that lacks technical competence. Texas Republicans are finally forced to do what they should have made the decision to do months ago. It's abhorrent they were willing to risk Texas lives to hold this convention in-person until a Democratic mayor and court order stepped in and saved them from themselves.
