“As a father, I hope that my daughter and other young women look to these leaders as role models,” said Senator Bettencourt. “They work tirelessly to further our Republican cause and they are blazing a trail for the next generation of women leaders in the Republican Party. The future truly looks bright for the Republican Party in Texas.”

Senator Jane Nelson was also joined by Senator Hancock and Senator Bettencourt to issue a challenge to help raise money for the Candidate Resource Committee. The Senator’s have set a goal raising $30,000 to help the next generation of Republican leaders. The Candidate Resource Committee provides support to Republican candidates throughout the state and provides grassroots education and campaign tools.

“Many of the leaders around the State got their start at the local level,” said Senator Nelson. “The Candidate Resource Committee is a vital part of grassroots efforts to spread the Republican message to all corners of Texas and further our strong, conservative beliefs.”

Senator Hancock echoed the comments of Senator Nelson noting, “I got started as a local official, as a school board member, and I know first hand just how important this candidate committee is.”

The entire Republican Senate Caucus delegation walked the convention stage today. In attendance were Senators Bettencourt, Birdwell, Burton, Campbell, Creighton, Eltife, Estes, Fraser, Hall, Hancock, Huffines, Kolkhorst, Nelson, Nichols, Perry, Schwertner, Seliger, Larry Taylor and Van Taylor.

The Texas State Republican convention will continue through Saturday, May 14, 2016.
