Texas state law lays out a multi-step process by which delegates are chosen to the national convention from the state convention of every state-recognized party, to the state convention (Apr 13-15 in Houston) from county conventions being held throughout Texas today, to those from precinct conventions which had already been held, etc.
Video of the Harris County (Houston area) convention is live at Clayton Hunt For Texas House District 145 on facebook. It had been my intention to liveblog this meeting but due to a combination of vehicular issues and computer problems, the coverage will be as best I can provide. Help from others will be welcome in the comment section here.
Kathie Glass, two-time LPTx nominee for Governor now seeking her third nomination, is according to my sources on the side of the Texas Freedom Party and its effort to radically change the platform of the Texas LP. I have not had an opportunity to ask Ms. Glass whether this is true. Clarification is welcome in the comments.
So far watching Clayton Hunt’s video I have observed Kathie Glass win over LNC region rep Whitney Bilyeu 37-19 for county chair, some wrangling over voting procedures and secrecy, and my understanding that as I type this delegates to the state convention are being voted on. A ten minute recess just started and the meeting is scheduled from 10-4 central time today, so we are still in the first hour, but I don’t know if the time allotted will be used up. Further blogging will take place in the comment section.
