BECOME A
PRECINCT CHAIR

TARRANT COUNTY GOP NEEDS PATRIOTS, NOT PUSHOVERS

Washington D.C. is not the only place where the establishment resides. Right here in the Tarrant County GOP, there are dozens of delegates. precinct chairs, and elected officials that work overtime to keep incumbents in power and squelch outsiders, often labeling them as "alt-right" and "far-right." Conservative grassroots activists refer to those folks as "RINOs" or "Republicans in name only." 

In order to keep Tarrant County red, we must fill every vacant precinct chair position with real conservatives, who are willing to make the sacrifices and commitments needed. It's not hard and it's not expensive but it is effective. Scroll down to learn more.
