In light of President Trump’s Executive Order rightly returning the power to the state to protect its citizens,
Will Democrat Lawmakers Turn Their Backs on Voters?
In 2015, a broad coalition of Houstonians resoundingly defeated former Mayor Anise Parker’s so-called HERO ordinance (61%--39%) that would have let men into women’s restrooms and burdened private businesses with needless regulation.
Houston is the only major metropolitan where voters have had the chance to cast a ballot on such an issue. In that historic election, a broad coalition of ethnically and culturally diverse voters came together to overwhelmingly reject the liberal elites’ inane bathroom policies.
Harris County Republican Party Chairman Paul Simpson supports Lt. Governor Dan Patrick’s Privacy Act, which will stop liberal elites from using our schools for social experiments and keep them from repeating their failed Houston ordinance fight in every city and school district across Texas.Read more
Fred Barnes, a leading conservative columnist, this week posted an article that appeared to be a thoughtful analysis of the November 2016 election results in Harris County.

This morning we gathered together at Lakeside Country Club to support Congressman John Culberson. Liberal groups planned to gather and protest the Congressman's speaking engagement, so HCRP rallied support to show the Congressman that we stand with him and his conservative values. Thank you to everyone who came out today to show their support. We are a strong, united group and we must continue to stand together to protect the great men and women we elected to office.
Make sure to set your DVR's to watch Chairman Simpson this Sunday, February 19 at 10:00 am on KRPC 's Houston Newsmakers with Khambrel Marshall.
President Donald Trump's nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch for the U.S Supreme Court is a home-run for conservatives in Harris County and Texas. Judge Gorsuch is an extremely well qualified jurist with a proven track record of following the law and honoring the Constitution. Elevating Judge Gorsuch to the Supreme Court -- given his record of defending religious freedom, his unwillingness to surrender power to bureaucratic administrative agencies, and his devotion to the Constitution as ‘a carefully drafted text judges are charged with applying according to its original public meaning' -- may well have saved America from liberal ruin.
