AUSTIN, Texas — Today, the Republican Party of Texas sued Harris County to attempt to stop drive-thru voting in the middle of a pandemic.
Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“Cowards. Every single one of them are cowards. The Republican Party of Texas, Greg Abbott, the Texas Republican Supreme Court, and indicted Attorney General Ken Paxton are attempting to quash every opportunity to vote that is not the exact same as it was in 1900.
“It won’t work. Right now, millions of Texans across the state are doing everything in their power to make their voices heard. This terrifies Texas Republicans because they know Texans are fed up. Together we’ll overcome every Republican attempt to stop Texans from voting and turn the state blue. This is our moment.”
