Follow this link for information about the 2010 State Convention of the Texas Republican Party.  The convention will be held in Dallas, TX on June 11, 2010.  

The following information is taken from the RPT State Convention website (link above).

What is the State Convention? 


  • “The Republican Party convention system is a means by which Texas Republicans can participate in the formulation of the state platform, choose the leadership of the state party, and have a voice in who represents Texas at the national level of the party. Delegates and alternates are elected to attend the convention for the purposes of fulfilling Texas statutory and Republican Party rule requirements and of highlighting the state party’s goal of electing Republicans to office.” 


Delegates to the state convention will: 
  • Elect a State Party Chairman and Vice-Chairman
  • Elect members to serve on the State Republican Executive Committee
  • Adopt a Party Platform
Who is eligible to become a delegate to the State Convention?    

How is the platform determined? 
  • A temporary committee will conduct preliminary deliberations for the purpose of making recommendations to the permanent Platform & Resolutions Committee. The permanent Platform & Resolutions Committee will receive the recommendations of the temporary committee, as well as any resolutions filed with the convention secretary. The committee will also hear additional testimony, if offered. Their report will be distributed to delegates and approved on the second day of the convention.
  • Anyone who votes in the 2010 Republican primary election is eligible to become a delegate or alternate. All delegates and alternates are elected at county or senatorial district conventions that will be held on March 20, 2010. At each local convention, a Nominations Committee recommends a slate of names to bring before the full convention for consideration.
