The Texas Democratic Party on Texas Republicans Holding an In-Person Convention in the Biggest Coronavirus Hotspot in the Country

Style Magazine Newswire | 7/3/2020, 1:35 p.m.

Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:

“Against the advice of doctors, medical professionals, and common-sense, Greg Abbott and the Texas Republican Party decided to hold an in-person convention in the biggest coronavirus hotspot in the country. This decision is dead wrong.

“Greg Abbott and other Texas Republicans haven’t taken this crisis seriously from day one. Neither the vanity of hosting an in-person convention nor the lack of skill to host a modern virtual experience are reasons to put Houston workers and their families at risk.

“This is the last gasp of a declining party. What Greg Abbott, Dan Patrick, John Cornyn, and James Dickey are doing is downright criminal. Texans deserve real leadership. That's why Democrats will win up and down the ballot in November"
