Austin-

“We are thrilled to welcome the Honorable Karin Knolle, Justice of the Peace of Jim Wells County, to the Republican Party of Texas. Karen decided to switch parties and become a Republican after the Texas Democrats continued to fight for late-term abortions and attempted to strip Texans of their Second Amendment rights. The Republican Party of Texas continues to welcome anyone into our party who believes in limited government and has strong conservative values. This sends another powerful message to Texas Democrats that we will continue to work to ensure that Texas stays red.”
