    Since Allen West is primarying Abbott he had to resign as chair of the Texas Republican Party. This clown that almost got his ass kicked on the floor of the Texas house a few years ago after saying he was gonna call
    Immigration on protesters is his replacement.

    Family friend who represents corpus and is a republican. Was fully ready to get pissed off watching this. Instead he’s actually explaining the quorum rules to his constituents and his Twitter feed is just him retweetung weather info for south Texas. And his website positions are all about working on suicide prevention and domestic abuse.


    Maybe they aren’t all bad

    I went to college with his son. Good people.

    Hunter was one of Speaker Straus's top lieutenants. I believe GK is right, he would have worked to kill or neuter the bill, and failing that I do not imagine he'd vote for the bill like we see presented today. He is popular in his district but I doubt he could get elected as a republican anymore (not withstanding the fact that his district has since been redrawn to the point of being unrecognizable).

    He is my sisters godfather

    He was chair of the calendar committee for a long time which meant he was able to kill a lot of bills that republicans tried to ram through

    Strauss and hunter are republicans in the sense that Texas is so gerrymandered that it is impossible to get elected if you run as a dem. If there is an actual moderate that still exists he is one of them

    He’s waaaay worse than Abbott. Went on Steve Bannon’s show Friday and said if he were Governor he would’ve already sent the Texas Rangers to DC to arrest the democrats and seized their property.

    He’s a true believer. Abbott is a soulless politician.
