Could the Texas Republican presidential primary switch from the proportional awarding of delegates to “winner take all”? And will Mitt Romney join a Texas televised debate?

As Chairman Munisteri states this is not about Santorum there are many who have been for “Winner Take All” from the beginning.




Here is your call to Action: Call your SREC rep today and ask them to vote to make Texas a winner-take-all in the Presidential election:

Why should I take time to answer this call to action:   

“It appears that other states are breaking the RNC rules but may not be facing consequences for their actions. At least two Romney states have been allowed late in the game to change to Winner Take All.  This leads us to believe that Texas has the right to apply to the RNC for Winner Take All rule changes.”~ Donna Garner

Texas’ Role in Choosing the President

We in Texas know that we are a significant force in national conservative politics. After all, we have the largest Republican congressional delegation of any state, and ours is a conservative delegation!

We also have 155 delegates at stake in the presidential primary – that’s more than the famous first five primary states combined (Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida, and Nevada). Those five states are considered to have set the tone for the entire presidential race, but Texas has not spoken yet – and we can speak with a louder voice and with more impact than all of those states!

Under our winner-take-all system, our 155 delegates have a significant impact on any presidential race. But this year, the Republican National Committee was poised to penalize Texas for holding our primary in March (as we always do) by imposing on us a proportional delegate count, so the Republican Party of Texas moved away from our normal presidential procedure. But then the federal courts got involved and delayed the Texas primary until May. So Texas now has an opportunity to regain its unified voice by going back to a winner-take-all primary.

Contrary to what you may have heard from the national media, the race for the Republican presidential nominee is far from over. After all, only 37% of delegates have been assigned so far; and the media has been completely wrong on the number of delegates that separate Romney from the others (particularly the oft-repeated Associated Press count) – the actual count shows the gap to be much narrower than claimed.

Texas can therefore have a clear and powerful voice in selecting a conservative Republican nominee for president by moving back to a winner-take-all system. All it takes is for the State Republican Executive Committee (SREC) to call a meeting and make the rule change before the Texas primary vote. Please contact your SREC member and ask them to convene and make that change; and also contact the Republican Party of Texas and let them know that you want to see Texas regain its national voice.

Please act on this as quickly as possible – Texas, as the biggest conservative state in the country, should be allowed to speak with the loudest voice!! Thanks for all you do to keep Texas a conservative state!

God bless!

Please take the time to read this article by Weston Martinez: Why Texas Should be “Winner Take All”
“Yesterday I sent an email to Steve Munisteri and all my colleagues on the SREC requesting an emergency meeting where we would consider changing the delegate allocation in the Texas GOP primary to a winner-take-all for the Presidential election.”

The Texas Republican convention process is now underway. Please do not let this opportunity pass you by. Some counties are holding precinct conventions and others are not.  Attending the precinct convention is the first step in the convention process so it is important for you to attend.

Most counties are bypassing the precinct conventions and holding either the Senatorial District Convention (larger urban areas) or County Convention either on Saturday, April 14 or Saturday, April 21.

It is important that many of you become delegates to the Republican Party of Texas Convention in Fort Worth, June 7-9, 2012, so you must participate in the earlier processes in order to qualify to become a delegate.
