Texas GOP Convention Going Forward?

Posted by |

If a betting market exists for whether the GOP convention will take place in Houston or virtually, smart money at this point is on virtual.

This is bad news for the GOP.

On a town hall call, Chairman James Dickey stated that a virtual convention is not ideal for the majority of delegates. He’s right.

As a quick refresher.

The Texas GOP has planned for months to host an in-person convention in Houston. Now that hyped Marxist rioting has subsided and COVID19 case counts are on the rise, rancor for a second shutdown is ratcheting up.

This energy is being funneled by both Democrats and Republicans toward canceling the in-person convention in Houston.

Last week, GOP party leadership, months after it began furtively devising a virtual-only convention contingency plan, moved to adopt rules needed to implement the secretive solution.

Mail-in Balloting Lawsuits: a lay of the land

Posted by |

No Texan should run the increased risk of having their ballot harvested, lost, or tossed by to voting via mail when able to vote in-person.

Contrary to the constant public bedwetting by the left via social and mainstream media, Texans should not be worried about voting in-person either during the runoff election this summer or the November general election.

Nobody is being cavalier with lives; there’s just no example of an election leading to an uptick in coronavirus infections. There are however multiple examples of in-person elections being safely run.

Note: More lawsuits are anticipated, and will be added to the timeline when filed.
