GOP Rep. Sarah Davis Op-Ed BLASTS Texas Republicans for Opposing Abortion

GOP Texas State Representative Sarah Davis has slammed Republicans in a Houston Chronicle Op-Ed. Davis says Republicans should not be passing abortion restrictions because it is "not the role of the government" and "the Republican Party should not dictate to women" whether or not they can have the choice to have an abortion (which we know means the choice to kill millions of unborn babies) That, she says, should be decided by a woman and her doctor.

Sovereign Texas

The Texas State Republican Executive Committee (SREC) met for our regular quarterly meeting in Austin this weekend. As always, the meeting was open to the public. Any interested party with or without media credentials may attend the meetings.

As many readers of this site know, the presidential primary system in this country routinely disenfranchises primary voters in important “red” states like Texas. In the last cycle, due to a combination of rules and courts, Texas had one of the last primaries and had to allocate delegates proportionally. This effectively means we had little to no say as to who was nominated—it was already a “done deal” by the time we voted.   Read more »
