Austin – Republican Party of Texas (RPT) Chairman Tom Mechler released the following statement celebrating the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month:

“The Republican Party of Texas is proud to honor Americans of Hispanic descent as we begin Hispanic Heritage Month. Hispanic culture is woven through the fabric of Texas and Hispanic Texans are an important reason why our state is the best place to live, work, and raise a family in America,” said Chairman Mechler.

“Over the course of the next month the RPT looks forward to highlighting our Hispanic elected officials and grassroots leaders who have contributed enormously to our success. Leaders like Supreme Court Justice Eva Guzman, Land Commissioner George P. Bush, First Lady Cecilia Abbott, and Senator Ted Cruz to name a few, have made an overwhelmingly positive impact on our state and we are immensely proud they are Texas Republicans. I want to thank the Hispanic community for the richly positive impact they have made on Texas and the Republican Party of Texas.”
