Kolkhorst Wins Texas Senate Seat in Special Election

After a whirlwind campaign, Rep. Lois Kolkhorst, R-Brenham, on Saturday night defeated four other candidates in a special election for a State Senate seat just vacated by the state's next Comptroller. Former Sen. Glenn Hegar, R-Katy, resigned the seat that represents a huge area spanning from Katy to Brenham to the coast.

Kolkhorst was able to win 55 percent of the vote, with her closest competitor Gary Gates receiving only 34 percent of the vote. The fact that Kolkhorst received over 50 percent means there will be no runoff and she is now Senator-Elect. The election happened quickly enough that Kolkhorst will be sworn in as a senator as the Legislature convenes in January.   Read more »

Special Election for Texas Senate Seat Turns Nasty

BRENHAM – The mad dash to succeed Comptroller-Elect Glenn Hegar in the Texas Senate has turned quite negative in the final days leading up to this Saturday’s special election. The perceived frontrunner, Rep.

The statewide nominees were Justice Jeff Boyd for Texas Supreme Court Place 7, Judge Bert Richardson Court of Criminal Appeals #3, David Newell Court of Criminal Appeals #9, and Kevin Yeary Court of Criminal Appeals #4.

Breaking Down the Election on WFAA

The way some of the down-ballot races in Texas played out this past week put a fine point on just how powerful a wave the GOP was riding heading into Tuesday’s election.

Not only did Republicans sweep every statewide race, which was expected, but their margin of victory was way higher than even the party’s leadership expected. Right before the vote, Texas Republican Party Chairman Steve Munisteri had said he wouldn’t be surprised to see Attorney General Greg Abbott beat Sen. Wendy Davis

Republicans Win Big

Republican Party of Texas - We all know that Republicans won big on Tuesday night and it’s not by accident. The grassroots support from across the state made millions of phone calls and knocked on hundreds of thousands of doors. And while we suspected we were going to win, we didn’t realize it would be by such big margins.

The entire state is now an even deeper shade of red, which means we Texans get to enjoy prosperity and liberty

TEXAS REMAINS RED – Battleground Texas turns Livid!

Conservatism is not dead in Texas! How fantastic is it that Texas remained RED in spite of the fact that Battleground Texas worked so hard to defeat the Republicans, to erase our Conservative Values. After twelve years of Governor Rick Perry, Texas remained strong and reelected another Republican, Greg Abbott, who defeated Abortion Wendy Davis statewide with a devastating blow of 59.28% to her weak 38.88%. Abbott said, “Whether you voted for me, against me or didn’t vote at all, I’m going to work every single day to keep Texas the best state in the United States of America.” And no matter how hard Davis tried to hide her abortion agenda she just never got away from it. In fact, Davis did not even win Liberal Bexar County, Abbot 49.74% to her 48.42%.   Read more »

Hispanic Republicans of Texas Performance Review

When Battleground Texas started up, we heard a lot about how the booming Hispanic population in Texas was going to turn this state blue. On election night, Texas Republicans and HRT hit Democrats with the biggest reality check in years!

Thanks to your support, the Hispanic Republicans of Texas PAC recruited and encouraged candidates across the state to run for office and endorsed over 40 candidates for various offices. Last night over 70% of those supported by HRT won, including three candidates in state house districts where over 2/3 of the population is Hispanic.

Who Won:   Read more »

Texas Republicans Crushed ‘Em!

Republican Party of Texas - A year and a half ago, Democratic Obama operatives boldly pronounced that they were going turn Texas blue. Tens of millions of dollars spent on their behalf later, Texans defiantly answered by bestowing on our entire ticket landslide victories. It is arguably the finest night in the Republican Party of Texas’s modern history, as our entire statewide ticket swept the Democrats by huge margins.   Read more »
