After the electoral success enjoyed by all Texas Republicans after last Tuesday’s elections, much has been said and written about the members of the Texas House of Representatives who are ready to champion conservative values and principles during the next legislative session. However, the Republican Party of Texas also wishes to extend special thanks and credit to three Republican members of the upper chamber in the State Senate who have stepped up to help the RPT in our efforts to strengthen our Republican majority in Texas.

Said RPT State Chairman Steve Munisteri, “Our sincere thanks goes out to State Senators Florence Shapiro and Joan Huffman for going above and beyond to bolster the RPT’s work in this past election cycle. Senator Shapiro contributed $10,000 to supporting the RPT, and Senator Huffman raised $7000 for our state party’s work. Their outstanding generosity is truly appreciated, and I am very honored that we have earned the support of these women – both, true Texas Republican leaders. On a related note, I’d also like to extend our congratulations to both Senators Shapiro and Huffman on their landslide victories on Tuesday night!”

“I would also like to thank State Senator Tommy Williams, who similarly demonstrated tremendous dedication to our State Party with his contribution of $10,000 in this last cycle. Although he was not on the ballot in Senate District 4 during this particular election, the Republican Party in that area continues to thrive under his leadership. We saw large victories and Republican pickups across all six counties in his district, and are very excited about the number of new elected officials from The Woodlands all the way to Orange. I am honored that the RPT enjoys Senator Williams’ support and generosity.”
