Last week, State Rep. John Otto (R-Dayton) donated a $10,000 gift to the Republican Party of Texas, and we are very grateful for his support!

Chairman Steve Munisteri stated, “This is one of the most important times of the year for our state party, as we prepare even now for the all-important 2012 elections. Representative Otto’s donation comes at a time when we are working to strengthen our opposition to the Democrats efforts to re-elect President Obama, and when we are fighting to maintain our gains throughout Texas.”

Munisteri continued, “Representative Otto has been unwavering in his conservative leadership for East Texas since 2004. What a joy it has been these past months as so many Republicans won historic victories in formerly Democratic counties and communities across the region. His example has undoubtedly encouraged other Republicans to step forward to win elected office, and in several cases, many East Texas Democrats have switched parties to join our ranks. This donation will help the RPT to continue the growth of our conservative message in East Texas, and we look forward to gaining even more Republican victories here in 2012.”
