James Dickey elected State Chairman for Republican Party of Texas
Saturday at the 2nd Quarter Meeting of the State Republican Executive Committee in Austin, James Dickey defeated Rick Figueroa by a razor thin margin of 32-31 and thus was elected interim Chair of the Republican Party of Texas. The election was hastily called following the abrupt resignation of Tom Mechler on May 20, 2017. Dickey will serve out the remaining term of the out-going Chairman. That term expires at the next State GOP Convention scheduled next year in May.
