The Republican Party of Texas wishes to extend our appreciation and thanks to State Representatives Byron Cook, Kelly Hancock and Jim Keffer, for graciously hosting a recent fundraiser in Austin on behalf of the RPT. The event raised $25,000 in support of the state party and our battles in 2012!

Chairman Munisteri thanked the representatives, saying "Already, we have seen that 2012 is shaping up to be a year of unexpected change and challenges for the Texas GOP. In times of uncertainty, it is a blessing to be able to count on the strength of support from our elected officials. This financial support comes at a critical time when we are putting together the opening stages of our plans to fight the re-election of President Obama and for the protection of our Republican gains across Texas."

Munisteri continued, "These particular three representatives – Cook, Hancock, and Keffer – have always come to the assistance of the Party when asked. In this particularly challenging spring, when the Party is facing increased costs due to redistricting lawsuits and our need to prepare simultaneously for our Victory efforts, their help was particularly timely and I would like to thank each of them on behalf of the entire Republican Party."
