Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey Releases Statement on “Turn Texas Blue” Rally
AUSTIN, TX – Today, Democrat candidate for President Joe Biden held a virtual “Turn Texas Blue” rally with Beto O’Rourke and Texas Students for Biden.
Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey released the following statement:
“Joe Biden has consistently espoused Green New Deal-like policies which would devastate the Texas economy and destroy oil and gas jobs for nearly 2 million Texans. Now, he is siding with failed Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke who has openly admitted his church taxing, gun grabbing policies – Biden has even offered to make him his ‘Gun Czar.’ If it wasn’t clear how bad Joe Biden is for Texas before, it is crystal clear now. We will work tirelessly to ensure we keep Texas red and deliver all 38 electoral votes for President Trump who will fight to defend our rights and work to rebuild our economy.”
