Republican Party Update
REPUBLICAN PARTY UPDATES:
This current pandemic has affected all aspects of life including our elections and conventions. Below are the current statuses of our Party politics and dates:
- May 26th Primary Runoff Election: The Primary Runoff has been rescheduled for July 14th, with early voting from July 6th – 10th. For more information, the press release from Governor Abbott can be found here: https://gov.texas.gov/news/post/governor-abbott-postpones-runoff-primary-election-in-response-to-covid-19
- Municipal Elections:Governor Abbott has suspended provisions of the Texas Election Code to allow political subdivisions to postpone their May 2nd elections. On the matter he said, “I strongly encourage local election officials to take advantage of these waivers and postpone their elections until November”. Already, Mayor Powell has announced the Conroe City races have been moved to the November Election time frame. https://www.facebook.com/toby.powell.92/posts/3477915052222131
- State Convention:The Republican State Convention in Houston is rescheduled for July 13th – 18th in Houston. The General Meeting days are July 16th – 18th. While the hope is that the meeting can proceed normally, there is some uncertainty. As a result, the State Party has established a working group to evaluate a contingency of conducting the convention virtually. To be clear, this is a possible fallback option and comes with a number of challenges.
- Senate District Conventions:
- Senate District 3: Robert Coats is your Convention Chairman. The convention will be rescheduled for a future unknown date. We will be sure to send out the updated information as it comes in. You may reach Mr. Coats at email@example.com
