The hypocrisy of the Democrats continues…
Last week the majority of the Harris County Democrat state delegation left Austin on a private plane with beer, not wearing any masks. Yesterday Harris County Judge Lina Hildago asked everyone to start wearing masks again. The MIA Democrats have bemoaned the hardships they are suffering in DC in their hotel rooms paid for by Beto, while the Democrat Party is using this as a ploy to fundraise.
Meanwhile, the Republican Party continues to work for Texans. In Austin our legislators continued to work on legislation from felony bail reform to reducing the tax burden for those over 65 to (yes) ensuring the integrity of our elections.
Last weekend the Harris County Republican Party:
- Hosted the first signing party for Republican judicial candidates with over 145 people showing up to sign our judicial candidates’ petitions so their filing fees would be waived. (This is the first of many judicial signing parties that we will be hosting around the county over the next few months.)
- Blockwalked with a whole crew of precinct workers and volunteers in the July heat to talk to voters about the serious issues, like crime, that we are facing in Harris County.
- Joined a rally in Houston with other Republican groups to stand in solidarity with the people in Cuba fighting for freedom and basic necessities that their government denies them and so many Americans take for granted.
And we are just getting started…
Compared to the Democrats, Republicans don’t give up. Republicans don’t run away from our duty or a challenge. We are there every day fighting for our country, our state and our community. #ElectionsMatter!

Support Felony Bond Legislation!
Activist Democrat Criminal Court judges are releasing repeat violent criminals back onto our streets with little or no bond. This has caused the crime rate in Harris County and Houston to skyrocket and surpass some of the largest cities in the country, like Chicago. Join Harris County Republican Party and concerned Harris County citizens by adding your name to this letter to support Felony Bond Legislation. Sign the Crime Stoppers letter that encourages the Texas Legislature to address the serious crime wave that has occurred in Harris County due to these activist Democrat Criminal Court judges. This has got to stop!
Training and Development Committee Events
Ground Fire is a Training & Development Committee Program for “in-the-precinct / on-the-job” training, where we canvass precincts for precinct chairs and volunteers, teaching new precinct chairs some of the best practices, processes and lessons learned. This is a great opportunity to learn, and at the same time build our base, our ground game and help Republicans win again.
Precinct 0001 is the center of the targeted area. It is a strong democrat precinct (Average: 73% Democrat). So, the goal is to focus on the limited republican doors. This will require driving since the few republicans likely do not live on the same street. We will begin at a to-be-announced location at 9:30AM, for assignments (we will group in pairs) and instructions and begin canvassing at 10AM. We target completion by 2PM latest and will have a to-be-announced meetup location, possibly a late lunch, for an after-action review and improvement discussion.
