AUSTIN – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer recently led an effort to shut down the Federal Government in order to push the Democrats’ agenda. Now Senator Schumer is hosting a Democratic fundraiser for liberal candidates in Houston, TX. The Houston area and the entire Gulf Coast of Texas is still recovering from Hurricane Harvey’s destruction, and those liberal candidates’ policies will only serve to cripple recovery efforts and pull back Texas’ booming economy. The Republican Party of Texas calls on Senator Schumer to return to Washington D.C and leave Texas leadership to the Republicans who have implemented policies and principles that work.
