Major Issues


  1. Sets the policy determination for state GOP & presidential race in 2020.

  2. Marginalization of the uber-conservative Texas RPT Platform - to shorten & to conform w/the continual push of the party to the left. Platform often becomes law! 

  3. Amnesty - comes in all different forms and nomenclature, including 2014 convention’s “Texas Solution” (amnesty before closing the borders).

  4. Log Cabin Republicans - marriage equality for same-sex, tax equity for domestic partner benefits, permanent repeal of the death tax (which particularly discriminates against same-sex couples), and other common-sense “conservative” reforms.
