Richie: Delegates Should Disregard Misleading Information Suggesting County or District Conventions Have Been Cancelled
Below is a statement by Texas Democratic Chairman Boyd Richie regarding the upcoming County and Senate District Conventions:
“It has come to our attention that someone, perhaps in the name of the Texas Democratic Party, is spreading misinformation about upcoming County and Senate District Conventions. We have received reports from delegates who have received e-mails saying that conventions have been cancelled. We have also received unconfirmed reports that someone is placing robo-calls, claiming to be from the Texas Democratic Party, suggesting that county or district conventions have been cancelled.
“The Texas Democratic Party has not been informed that any county or district convention has been cancelled or postponed. If any delegates receive information to that effect, I urge them to plan to attend their convention as scheduled unless they receive information about a postponement or cancellation from their local Democratic County Chair or the official Texas Democratic Party website.
“As we begin the next step in the convention process, all eyes are once again on Texas, watching and waiting to see the outcome of the delegate count that will be determined by our County and Senatorial District Conventions and State Convention. I am confident that the vast majority of Democrats will conduct our convention business in the fairest, most professional, and most impartial manner possible, as we work to convert the enthusiasm driving the convention process into Democratic victories from the County Courthouse to the State House to the White House.”
