Retired U.S Army lieutenant colonel Allen West will be the new chairman of the Republican Party of Texas.
This past weekend, Texas GOP delegates overwhelmingly voted to replace the incumbent Chairman James Dickey.
West served in Congress from 2010 to 2012.
Brandon Waltens noted that “Dickey was originally selected by members of the State Republican Executive Committee to fill a vacancy after the resignation of former Chairman Tom Mechler, and won re-election in 2018 after an unsuccessful challenge from Cindy Crocker Asche.”
West made it a point to be more active as chairman of the Texas GOP and actually score legislative wins. He also made it clear that Republicans must actually stand up to their Democrat rivals.
“It is time that the Republicans in Texas act like they’re in the majority, and not have Democrats as chairmen of very important committees that undermine our legislative priorities, like what we saw happen with constitutional carry, or even putting them on critical boards and commissions such as the Legislative Budget Board,” declared West in a questionnaire that Texas Scorecard sent out. “We need to act like we’re in the majority and respond to the grassroots and priorities of the people that elected Republicans to be where they are in the state of Texas.”
The convention was originally set to be held in Houston. However, the Democrat Mayor Sylvester Turner ended up canceling the party’s contract with the George R. Brown Convention Center.
This move forced the GOP to hold the convention online. Walten explained that the convention faced a number of technical hiccups:
The online convention, however, was plagued with technical problems from the start, as delegates were unable to receive their credentials to vote securely—a problem that was never completely resolved, leaving some longtime grassroots activists reportedly unable to participate in the process, and frustrating those that were.
Nevertheless, voting still took place and West declared victory in a Facebook post around 3:15 A.M. on July 20.
The result was officially confirmed during a general session at noon on July 20 after Dickey handed the gavel over to West.
Hopefully, under West’s leadership, the Texas GOP listens to the will of conservative voters and actually passes conservative legislation such as Constitutional Carry.
VIDEO: America First PAC Defends Marjorie Greene and Rips Her Swamp Opponent a New One
Congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene is going on offense against her Republican rival John Cowan.
Greene is currently running in Georgia’s 14th congressional district and will be facing off against Cowan during a runoff election on August 11.
Drain the DC Swamp PAC, a conservative PAC that promotes America First candidates, recently posted several messages on FB in favor of Greene.
On August 4, 2020, the PAC posted “We fully endorse Marjorie Taylor Greene for Congress for Congress and call on all patriots in Northwest Georgia to turn out for her and VOTE on August 11th. She is pro-Trump and conservative. Our nation is under attack by godless socialists who hate America and we need a fighter in Congress who will stop them. These same socialists are trying to vote in the primary to stop Marjorie Greene. We must not let that happen! Vote Marjorie Greene to save America from the radical left!”
A few days later, the PAC page attacked Cowan by declaring that “John Cowan is the SWAMP and is backed by the SWAMP.”
John Cowan is the SWAMP and is backed by the SWAMP. He won’t stand up to the socialists. He is OK with renaming our great Georgia military bases – Fort Benning and Fort Stewart. Fort Benning trains the US Army Infantry, Airborne, and Rangers. Fort Stewart is the home of the prestigious 3rd Infantry Division.These two bases trained and deployed America’s combat soldiers all throughout the world and they are the same bases who trained the fighting men who won two world wars.Vote AGAINST sellout John Cowan.
The PAC called on voters in Georgia’s 14th district to vote against Cowan “or he will sell out to the socialists.”
Drain the DC Swamp PAC is an organization that promotes conservative policies such as “protecting life to protecting our borders, we support those who fight for traditional values, our Constitution, and our Country.”
The PAC also supports “President Trump’s vision of a government of, by, and for the people. We believe the people have the right to know what their government is doing, and support leaders who aren’t afraid to hold it accountable.”
This is one race America First champions cannot ignore.
