Generation Now Endorses James Dickey for RPT Chair

To the Delegates and Alternates of the Republican Party of Texas Convention,

We the undersigned young Republican leaders are proud to personally endorse James Dickey for re-election as the Republican Party of Texas Chairman.
 
In his 10 months at the helm of the RPT, Chairman Dickey has already had extraordinary success in building relationships between young leaders and the older generations in our party.
 
When Chairman Dickey was elected, a couple of his first acts included obtaining sign language interpreters for SREC meetings and encouraging auxiliaries to participate in debate at these meetings as their ex-officio status would allow. The Texas Young Republican Federation, the Texas Federation of College Republicans, and all other auxiliaries had a real voice on the SREC and were finally allowed to use it.
 
Chairman Dickey then opened up the resources of the party to young Republican leaders when he invited the Texas Young Republicans to be partners in the Grassroots Club. They created YRGrassroots.com to bring in monthly donors and to help the party. These type of win-win scenarios have helped all of us grow.
 
Chairman Dickey has also taken the time to travel the state speaking to young Republican groups from the Valley to North Texas. He utilizes modern technology to send a video or speak via live-stream when necessary, but he consistently makes the time to actually go and see the people face-to-face. He answers their concerns and shows that he cares for them and their success in our party. Chairman Dickey understands that outreach is not just telling others what you believe, but listening.
 
However, we have come together to endorse Chairman James Dickey for re-election not solely based on any big project, but based on his heart, character, passion, and humility that shines through it all. We believe he recognizes and has acted upon the belief that our generation is not just the future of the party – we are the “Now” of the party.
 
Many of us may view ourselves in different places within the party, but we can still come together under Chairman Dickey’s leadership. Thanks to his actions, the relationship between young Republican groups and the RPT is stronger than ever.
 
For all of these reasons and more, we are proud to endorse Chairman James Dickey for re-election, and we hope you will join us in voting for him at our State Convention.

RNC National Committeeman Robin Armstrong Endorses James Dickey for RPT Chair

“I am proud to endorse James Dickey for Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas. Over the last few months, I have watched Chairman Dickey gain the confidence of our great Governor, the Republican National Committee leadership, and most importantly, the grassroots conservatives who work so hard to keep this state conservative and red.

“This will be one of the most consequential midterm elections in many decades, even here in Texas. Since James was elected by the State Republican Executive Committee, he has been willing to work with every Texan and every activist, even those who have worked to defeat him in the past.

“Now is the time to unite behind Chairman James Dickey and re-elect the only candidate who has successfully raised the money for our Party, successfully worked with our national party leaders and our President, and successfully stood and fought for our conservative values in the Legislature and beyond.

“Now is the time to re-elect James Dickey as RPT Chair!”

-Dr. Robin Armstrong
Texas Republican National Committeeman

“I am proud to have worked with Dr. Armstrong on numerous issues over the years to ensure that the State of Texas is well represented as a part of the Republican National Committee. Robin is a great champion of the Republican Party of Texas, a man of strong character and a conservative who has earned respect across the state. I appreciate his support and look forward to continue working with Robin toward victory in November.” – James Dickey

Texas Right to Life PAC Endorses James Dickey for RPT Chairman!

“Today, Texas Right to Life PAC announced their endorsement of my campaign to remain Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas.

“The God-given right to life is the cornerstone of every other right we possess and enjoy. Protecting that right from the moment of conception to natural death is paramount to our Party and the future of our state.
 
“I am proud to have fought alongside many activists and organizations in efforts to see all life protected and abortion ended, such as when I testified on House Bill 2 during the 83rd Legislature’s Special Session in 2013 as a Precinct Chair – before I was elected Chairman of Travis County Republican Party and before being elected to statewide service as Chair of the Republican Party of Texas.
 
“I am proud to stand with the pro-life community and am grateful to Texas Right to Life for recognizing those efforts and endorsing my candidacy for State Party Chairman. Thank you!”
James Dickey
