On Wednesday, May 31st, the Bexar County Republican Party hosted a forum so that active Republicans could meet and assess the two leading candidates running to fill Chairman Mechler’s unexpired term. Bexar County Republican Party Chairman Robert Stovall asked the questions of Travis County Republican Party Chairman James Dickey and Rick Figueroa. The new party chairman was then elected at the regular quarterly SREC meeting on Saturday, June 3rd in Austin. With the race being between two great, quality candidates, the vote was as close as possible, 32-31. We thank them both, and congratulate the new Republican Party of Texas Chairman, James Dickey.
