There may be a new sheriff in town for the Texas Republican Party, as former U.S. Congressman Allen West says his probable run for the chairmanship of the Texas GOP is all but certain.
Shortly after addressing the Turning Point USA rally in Washington, D.C, this past week, former Florida Congressman Allen West told HISPOLITICA during a phone interview that his campaign for chairman of the state GOP was about “80 percent go” and that his campaign was “criteria-based,” adding that he is making sure that “when we do launch, all the systems are there for people to engage.”
West’s reason for running is simple. West wants to push back against what he calls the “progressive socialist Left that is controlling all of the major population centers in Texas.”
