Austin, TX, Release: September 4, 2020.  For Immediate Release

The Republican Party of Texas will not be providing any resources to the SD-27 candidate, Vanessa Tijerina.

Due to multiple arrests and shocking evidence of driving under the influence, using controlled substances, and endangering a child, we will not be supporting her campaign in any way.

Ms. Tijerina’s behavior does not reflect the values of the GOP of Texas, and we do not wish to promote anyone of her character.

The Republican County Chairs of Cameron, Hidalgo Kleberg, Kenedy, and Willacy have all joined us in withholding support for her campaign. Many of the Chairs have also passed resolutions against her.
