Austin, TX, Release: December 8, 2020. For Immediate Release

Chairman Allen West and the entire Texas GOP support the legal action taken against the states of Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. We cannot allow illegal votes to be counted and voter suppression to be tolerated.

Below is Chairman West’s full statement on the matter.

“The Republican Party of Texas strongly supports the lawsuit filed by the State of Texas against Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. The unconstitutional and illegal actions in those states relating to the 2020 national election violate the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment for Texans. We cannot tolerate judicial and executive actions that undermine election law. These matters should be resolved in our respective state legislatures. And our Constitution supports that assertion, Texas has standing in filing this petition. Our Constitution clearly expresses the enumerated power and right, of state legislatures to decide electors. If the progressive socialist left wants to complain, perhaps they can explain their support of the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact initiative.”

Texans will always stand for the rule of law. We will not let the progressive socialist left undermine our Republic.
