Austin, TX, Release: July 12, 2021 — For Immediate Release
Texas Democrats are fleeing the state, revealing they will do anything to thwart the will of the people of Texas. Undermining a legitimate special session through political theater is action that cannot be tolerated and should not be rewarded.
Republican Party of Texas Chairman Matt Rinaldi had this to say:
“It’s not surprising that Democrats would flee the state to prevent free and fair elections. Thankfully, our Governor has the ability to call special sessions until they return and add all of our GOP Priorities to the call. Our Republican Speaker has the ability to revoke committee chairmanships currently held by Democrats, as well. This tantrum won’t prevent the passage of important legislation to protect our elections.”
The Texas GOP urges our state officials to ensure that order prevails and that the appropriate measures are taken to ensure Election Integrity legislation and other GOP Priorities are delivered.
