His work has been at the genuine grassroots level, it has been national, and his campaigns have yielded national media attention.

Whatever engagement has been done by the GOP, Broden gave it this characterization. “It certainly has not been demonstrative of our philosophies and ideas that drive us a party. We have the best message in town.”

RERhotclip – Quintero Lays Out New Annexation Protections For Texas Dec 3 2017
At the end of Texas Legislative Sessions, session after session, perhaps a handful of planks of the current platform ever become reality. An under-appreciated and under-reported victory from the 2017 85th Legislative Session is the restraints put on the practice of annexation in Texas. It was actually achieved in the 2017 Special Legislative Session – one of the few liberty advancements.
A great tyrannical practice in Texas is the seizing of sovereign municipalities through the power annexation. Like many things in the Texas political ecosystem, it could be surmised that the property grab for taxing authority is at epidemic proportions.

RER SPECIAL PROGRAM The Election Of James Dickey As TxGOP Chair 060317
The election of James Dickey as the new Republican Party of Texas Chairman marks a tectonic shift in the power structure of the party. For the first time since the inception of the Tea Party, someone has been elected to the chair’s position that has legitimate ties to the movement. The Dallas Tea Party’s Ken Emanuelson stated on RagingElephantsRadio.com that Dickey is a co-founder of the Dallas Tea Party. Dickey also founded the Central Texas Republican Assembly.
The meeting room was too small for the crowd smashed together at the Wyndham Garden Hotel on I-35 south in Austin for the Saturday, June 3 meeting. The purpose of the gathering was the second quarter meeting of the State Republican Executive Committee (SREC), the board of directors of the Texas GOP.
The second item on the agenda was the election of the new interim Chair after the sudden resignation of ex-chair Tom Mechler on May 20. The two nominated candidates were Rick Figueroa of Brenham – an unknown and newcomer to party involvement – and, James Dickey the current chairman of the Travis County GOP.

RERhotclip TEMO Figueroa Is A Peacemaker 060117
Artemio “Temo” Muniz heads up the Federation of Hispanic Republicans here in Texas. The organization is an official auxiliary of the Republican Party of Texas.
Based in Houston, Temo was present and a contributor for the inception of the Tea Party in Houston. His cred as a grassroots activist cannot be questioned. His style of engagement employs tactics of benevolence in Hispanic communities. A typical example would be to expend sweat equity by cleaning up the lawn of an elderly, disabled Hispanic couple that received a citation for their poorly kept lawn from the City of Houston. Temo believes that direct, personal investment in communities of color will yield a bountiful harvest of new GOP voters from Hispanic communities.
Temo was present when things got more than a little heated within the Texas delegation to the 2016 RNC National Convention. It was all about the controversial speech of Texas U.S. Senator Ted Cruz. Texas delegates were literally in each other’s faces – Trump verses Cruz delegates, as Temo witnessed it.
Temo videoed, and has posted, what he believes is a moment that SREC members should consider as they prepare to vote for the interim chair of the Republican Party of Texas. The candidates are Rick Figueroa and James Dickey.

RERhotclip HUBBARD Rumblings That TxGOP Establishment Unhappy With Straus 052317
Texas Speaker of the House, Joe Straus, has been the prime nemesis of the LM (liberty movement) since his election in 2009 with the tally of 11 Republicans and 65 Democrats. He has held firm to power since then, thrashing any opposition to his office.

RERhotclip RERresearch Uncovers The REAL Rick Figueroa 052217
RERresearch has discovered that candidate for Republican Party of Texas Chairman, Rick Figueroa, has an interesting history of political contributions.
Figueroa, a political no-name, was the first to declare as a candidate for the suddenly-vacated chairman’s position by former chairman Tom Mechler. Liberty movement influencers were not amused by the fact that Figueroa is Mechler’s choice to succeed him, and apparently the recipient of special grooming for the position over the last year from behind the scene’s – so says a source within the party.
Although Figueroa has been following Mechler around the state like a nine-week-old puppy, the record of his campaign donations introduce the first questions about his dedication to the ideals of the Texas GOP.
For those that have initially believed that Figueroa somehow jumped to the head of the line for this plum position because he’s some sort of major donor to the Republican Party, you’ll be disappointed. A modest financial political contributor would be an appropriate description.
Of Figueroa’s entire donation history, two stand out among the few. Two to Democrats.
