Dear Texas GOP Leaders:
As you know, there is a contested race for RPT Chair at the upcoming Republican State Convention.
In the event that Chairman Dickey prevails, I am announcing my candidacy for Vice Chair of the Republican Party of Texas.
Chairman Dickey and I are not running as a slate; however, I believe that we would make an effective team working to further the success of the Republican Party of Texas.
Many leaders for whom I have the utmost respect have encouraged me to run, including National Committeeman Dr. Robin Armstrong. I am including his endorsement in this email.
It was wonderful to see many of you at the last SREC meeting. It's hard to believe, but my four children are grown, and we have just one son still in college, so it is a great time for me to get back to work for conservatives in Texas. Not that I've ever really stopped!
The announcement of Vice Chair Amy Clark that she would not be seeking reelection was a surprise to many including me, but I certainly understand the demands of being a home-school mom to young children. Amy is loved by all, and she has served the RPT with distinction. We will definitely miss her presence at the RPT; however, she will undoubtedly continue to serve in other capacities. Amy is a tough act to follow!
My passion for our platform has always been the driving force behind my activism. While we will never agree 100% on every plank, it is imperative that we preserve the heart and soul of our party, which is spelled out in the ten principles listed immediately following the preamble of our Texas platform.
As a small business owner, I also look forward to approaching the work of the Republican Party of Texas with an analytical eye, focusing on recruiting candidates, raising money, GOTV, and strengthening the infrastructure of the party.
Making America Great Again is not possible unless we Keep Texas Great. As Texas goes, so goes the United States. The Democrats are targeting Texas, and we are under assault on every front. While we have enjoyed great success over the past decade, we must not become complacent.
I ask for your support and your prayers as we head into the state convention. Thank you for all that you do, and I look forward to seeing you in San Antonio!
