Austin, TX, Release: January 31, 2021 For Immediate Release
The Texas GOP condemns all talk of political violence, specifically comments made by gubernatorial candidate Martin Holsome.
Chairman Allen West has stated, “I personally find any depictions of a noose disgusting and despicable. Martin Holsome’s language is horrifying. Calling for lynching is mortifying to any decent American.”
Support for political violence will never have a home in the Texas GOP. We have consistently condemned the leftist violence that ravaged the nation last summer and again in early January. We have always been consistent in this principle.
