Cruz squeezes by with a win; Harris County GOP suffers

Image result for harris county gop

Harris County’s straight ballot totals for this year’s election leaned staggeringly to the left, with Democrats having 55% of the straight vote, and Republicans holding 44%. In comparison, the straight totals from 2012 were almost exactly even, with just 0.44% separating the two parties.

This trend to vote straight democrat did not affect major state-wide elections, such as Cruz-Beto or the gubernatorial race between Republican Greg Abbott and Democrat Lupe Valdez, but it did greatly affect local elections.

Statement on Revealed Trump Video

HSRT condemns the words of Donald Trump in the strongest terms. His comments are utterly disgraceful and inexcusable. Women should not and must not be treated or spoken about in such terms. They are people and individuals- not objects to be used. That which was expressed in this regretful video does not represent the GOP or the values of its constituents. Let the party not be defined by one candidate or election, but by the its beliefs observed for generations.
As Republicans, we must band together to promote our message of liberty and limited government. As Republicans, we must practice what we preach- that character matters.
