“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.

Tremendous victory tonight for Pete Flores who will become the 21st member of the Texas Senate Republican Caucus! This gives the Republicans in the Texas Senate a 2/3rds supermajority.

This victory shows the unified support from Texas Republicans all the way from US Senators Cruz and Cornyn, to Governor Abbott, to Lt. Governor Patrick, all 20 Texas Senate Republican Caucus members and many others. Despite what some pundits might say Republicans can win in 2018!

Texas Senate Republican Caucus Chair Paul Bettencourt (R-Houston) added: "With no straight ticket voting in 2020 I predict that Pete Flores can hold this seat in 2020."

"Share" if you agree!
