Texas Presidential Debate?
Update: Petition now has over 5000 signatures!
Last weekend at my County Convention in Hardin County, TX, I was pleasantly surprised when a young woman from my county, Chelsea Willis, approached me and said she had a petition with over 3000 signatures on it. The petition was to try to persuade Mitt Romney to come to a Texas Republican Presidential Debate. The petition is titled "Potential Nominees, attend the GOP Debate (Houston, TX on May 24th, 2012)".

The national media has now jumped in after TexasGOPVote blogger David Bellow blogged about a possible emergency State Republican Executive Committee (SREC) meeting to change Texas from a proportional to a winner-take-all state, when Texas Republican delegates participate in the Republican National Convention in August. Bellow's post came on the heals of his post about the pending Texas Presidential Debate in May and his post about the resolution passed by the Republican Party of Texas warning Gov. Mitt Romney to attend the debate or risk losing Texas delegates. Today, additional national blogs and media stepped in. Bellow was quoted extensively in the Daily Caller as well as several other sources (see more links below).

Below is the article about Texas GOP Passing a Resolution Warning Romney:
The State Republican Executive Committee of the Republican Party of Texas met for a quarterly meeting on Saturday March 31st, 2012 in Austin, TX.
Several things of importance happened at the meeting, but this article will only cover the resolutions that were passed by the SREC. I will post other articles regarding the other things that happened at the meeting.
There were five resolutions passed at this meeting. The most pressing and striking resolution that passed was a resolution warning Mitt Romney to go to the Texas Presidential Debate that the Republican Party of Texas is putting together before the Texas Primary on May 29th, 2012. Gingrich, Santorum and Paul have accepted the invitation to this nationally televised Texas Presidential Debate. Romney has not accepted. Read more »

A Major Presidential Debate in Texas? This is pretty much unheard of!
Nothing is set in stone yet, but the Republican Party of Texas is close to finalizing a deal that will bring a nationally televised Republican Presidential Debate to Houston, TX on May 24th, 2012.
