Conservatives Call on Abbott for Special Session
Yesterday, conservative leaders from across Texas held a press conference in Farmers Branch calling on Governor Greg Abbott to call a special session.
Direct Action Texas’ executive director Daniel Greer spoke at the event on the topic of election integrity, specifically missed opportunities to secure Texas elections ahead of 2020. Full remarks are attached to this article.
Election integrity is one of the 11 issues part of the Lone Star Agenda, formulated following the purple legislative session.
Following prepared remarks, Joann Flemming stated that, “If Dennis Bonnen is left in place as Speaker, he will be the poster child for Democrats to say Republicans are the party of corruption in Texas.”
A special session would afford members of both parties the opportunity to vote on a new speaker and remove the specter of Bonnen being a smudge on House candidates headed into the 2020 primary and general elections.
