Texas GOP Stands Against Ballot Harvesting

November 6, 2020 The Texas GOP is fighting for election integrity and ensuring that each legal vote is counted.  Fraud and voter suppression should not be tolerated, and any discrepancies should be thoroughly investigated, especially with historic levels of mail-in ballots and ballot harvesting, which are fertile soil for fraud.

Even now, unverified ballots in Tarrant County continue to undermine the electoral integrity.  Chairman Allen West stated, […]

This is a textbook case of Democrats legislating […]

RPT Chairman West: Kamala Harris and Identity Politics

August 11, 2020 Here is what the mainstream media won’t tell you about Joe Biden’s selection of Kamala Harris as his running mate: Kamala Harris wasn’t chosen because she is qualified. She was chosen purely because she is a Black female who checked off all the boxes on the progressive socialist checklist. The radical left demanded that Joe Biden choose a Black female for his VP running mate.  For them it’s about identity politics, not character.  The soft bigotry of low expectations emanating from the progressive socialist left is nauseating.  The white leftist mentality, that Blacks can be manipulated with […]
