AUSTIN, Texas — An ex-chairman of the Travis County Republican Party has been re-elected after his unconventional successor lost the job by filing to run for U.S. president.
James Dickey was re-elected Tuesday night by Republicans meeting in Austin.
Robert Morrow in March was elected head of the GOP in heavily Democratic Travis County, in spite of his history of vulgar comments and conspiracy theories. Morrow was decried both parties for his remarks.
