Austin- “The Republican Party of Texas is proud to honor the Hispanic community as we kickoff Hispanic Heritage Month in 2016. The Hispanic community stands for the same values that all Texans share and cherish, including the right to create your own path to success, faith, freedom, and family values. There is no doubt in my mind that the Hispanic community in Texas is one of the main reasons why our state is so successful today,” said Chairman Mechler.

“As we move closer to Election Day, we look forward to highlighting our Hispanic Elected Officials and candidates who have made countless contributions to both our state and the Republican Party of Texas, and are on the ballot this upcoming November. Without question, the RPT would not be the most dominant state party in the country without the Hispanic community playing an integral role, and we look forward to continuing to showcase the immensely positive impact that Hispanic Texans have on our state.”
