Rep. Biedermann attends the Republican Party of Texas Convention.
June 20, 2018, San Antonio, TX…Last week, the Republican Party of Texas hosted its state convention in San Antonio at the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center and was attended by over 9,000 Republican Delegates and elected officials from all levels of Texas Government.
There was an unusual booth in the exhibit hall, “Ask a Muslim Couple Anything,” hosted by a Muslim couple, Clay and Aicha Smith, of Austin. Mr. Smith was inspired to be part of the convention after receiving a survey from State Rep. Kyle Biedermann polling the Muslim community on their views on “institutionalized Shariah” and “religious freedom.” Clay Smith now refers to Rep. Biederman as, “his buddy” and someone who cares about religious freedom for all in Texas. It turned out to be a very positive experience for all.
The call to action for Republicans and Conservatives to unify as the General Election approaches was the overriding message at the Convention. Delegates gathered and voted to elect new party leadership and update their rules and legislative priorities on the Texas Republican Party Platform.
The Texas Freedom Caucus, of which Representative Biedermann is a member, was established last session, and proved just how effective a group of unified and committed members can be when they shook up business as usual in the Texas House during the 85th Legislative Session. Their bold message resonates with grassroots Republicans in Texas and was demonstrated on Thursday night at a rally they hosted to a “standing-room only” crowd that spilled out into the hallway to hear them talk about their mission and their victories in the 85th Legislative Session, and their goals for the 86th Session.
Representative Biedermann spoke to constituents in Senate Districts 24 and 25, shared his passion for Texas Liberty live on the Doc Greene Radio Show, joined a live-stream discussion with Texas Right to Life, and appeared with other conservatives on the main stage during Saturday’s General Session.
As the conference concluded, attendees disbursed to their home communities, eager to galvanize Republicans across Texas and win the fight to Keep Texas Red in November.
