Tuesday, May 1st, the Central Texas Republican Assembly will meet to consider further endorsements. The endorsement election is open to those who have been members In good standing for 60 days, but all are welcome to help us discuss the candidates.
Our goal is to find a “bright-line” distinction between candidates. We look for adherence to the Texas Republican platform, which models our Pro-Life, Pro-Family, Small-Government ideals. If there are multiple candidates that equally stand for these ideals, we will not endorse. Similarly, if there are no candidates that will proudly hold to these ideals, we will also not endorse.
Endorsements by Republican Assemblies have a high hurdle. In addition to a quorum of members, a candidate must receive a 2/3rds vote by secret ballot.
Our meeting on May 1st will be at Joe’s Crab Shack on Riverside in Austin, about a half-mile West of I-35.
