TEXAS: Republican Leader Tanya Robertson Calls For Statewide Ballot On Secession From USA

Texas Republican Party committee member Tanya Robertson wants to place a secession vote on the GOP primary ballot. The Houston Chronicle reports:

Robertson, State Republican Executive Committee member for Senate District 11, which covers parts of Harris, Galveston and Brazoria counties, said she’ll present the resolution at the committee’s December 4 meeting in Austin, and that she already has support from a few other members. “There’s been a big groundswell of Texans that are getting into the Texas independence issue,” she said, citing conversations she’s had with constituents. “I believe conservatives in Texas should have a choice to voice their opinion.”

Texas GOP chairman Tom Mechler says he doubts Robertson has the support to have her item approved.
