The Texas Republican party has chosen Allen West to be their new chairman. He is an excellent choice.
West is a true conservative who recognizes the threat posed by the radical left.
The Dallas Morning News reported:
Texas GOP ousts chairman, picks tea party firebrand Allen West to lead in 2020 elections
Conservative firebrand and former Florida congressman Allen West will lead the Texas Republican Party into the 2020 election, after ousting the previous chairman early Monday during a convention marred by technical difficulties.
He vowed to use his post to push back against Democrats’ “progressive socialism.”
“I am sick and tired of Republicans being on their heels, being on the defense, always being reactionary with a party that as we see right now — they don’t stand up for the rule of law, they stand for rule of the mob,” he said during a victory lap on conservative media.
The retired Army lieutenant colonel was propelled into Congress for a single term amid a tea party wave in 2010, but he lost his reelection bid in a costly race in which he spent $17 million. The Democrat who defeated him called him a right-wing extremist and spent less than a quarter of that.
In the ensuing years, West built a following as a conservative commentator.
Many people on the right are energized by this choice.

West accepted the position humbly:
I just want to say how truly humbled I am by this honor, and that I will work hard for Texas and Texans.
I would like to thank my amazing and dedicated team, as well as an incredible number of supporters.
Thank you all!
Now the work begins…
