History in the Making

November 20, 2014

After receiving the great news that our Republican statewide candidates split or won the Hispanic American and Asian American vote this year, we have good news to report regarding our engagement efforts in the African American community. Historically, the African American vote leans heavily towards the Democrat side, and while that statement is still true today, we are making …

Thanks

The RPT extends a big thank you to all those elected officials, volunteers, Republican activists, party leaders, and donors who contributed mightily to our landslide victory on Election Day. At the top of the list is Railroad Commissioner, Christi Craddick, who agreed to take on the burdensome, but important, role of Victory Chairman. The primary responsibility …

In case you missed it…

November 6, 2014

In case you missed it … We all know that Republicans won big on Tuesday night and it’s not by accident.  The grassroots support from across the state made millions of phone calls and knocked on hundreds of thousands of doors.  And while we suspected we were going to win, we didn’t realize it would …

Congratulations!

November 5, 2014

Although Lieutenant Governor-elect Dan Patrick, Comptroller-elect Glenn Hegar, and Attorney General-elect Ken Paxton were not with us in Austin last night, they still had plenty to celebrate at their own parties as they all trounced their opponents. Lt. Governor-elect Dan Patrick won his race by almost 20% and Comptroller-elect Hegar and Attorney General-elect Paxton both bested their opponent by margins in excess of …

Crushed ‘Em!

November 5, 2014

A year and a half ago, Democratic Obama operatives boldly pronounced that they were going turn Texas blue. Tens of millions of dollars spent on their behalf later, Texans defiantly answered by bestowing on our entire ticket landslide victories. It is arguably the finest night in the Republican Party of Texas’s modern history, as our entire …

Just Five Days Left to Early Vote!

The last week to vote early in Texas begins today and some people think we have already won the election. While the polls might show that Greg Abbott has a generous lead, the only poll that matters is on Election Day. And what’s not making news is that many of our judges and legislators are in …
