BREAKING ICYMI: Texas Republican Party Fumbles the Ball Before 2020 Even Starts, Leaks Communications Plan to Texas Democratic Party

Texas Republicans Express Concern of “the Polarizing Nature” of Donald Trump

Austin, TX — In a breaking story from the Dallas Morning News, the Republican Party of Texas communications plan leaked tonight, expressing the concern of the “polarizing nature” of Donald Trump and attempting to make a fake diversity video due to the lack of diversity in their candidates.

From the Dallas Morning News:

  • “In a bizarre political blunder, a document laying out the Republican Party of Texas’s election strategy for the 2020 elections, which details a plan to attack Democratic candidates through online websites and mitigate ‘the polarizing nature’ of President Trump, has ended up in the hands of Texas Democrats.”

  • “The document, titled ‘Primary/General Election 2020 [Draft]’ began showing up in Democratic emails Monday evening. It…details a plan to roll out negative attacks through online websites, and highlight diverse Republicans to counter a ‘narrative driven by Democrats’ about the GOP’s lack of diversity.”

  • “‘Republicans have already fumbled the ball and we aren’t even in 2020 yet,’ said Manny Garcia, executive director of the Texas Democratic Party. “They know they’re in deep trouble ‘given the polarizing nature of the President’ and expect ‘Republicans will refuse to turnout during the General Election because they don’t want to vote for him.’ The Texas Republican Party is desperate. That’s why they’re going negative, building a fake diversity video, and are regretting their decision to eliminate straight-ticket voting.’”

  • “After gaining twelve seats in 2018, the Democrats pulled the difference between them and Republicans in the House to 67-83 and they have made no secret of their desire to take full dominance of the lower chamber next year.”

Texas Democratic Party Executive Director Manny Garcia issued the following statement:

“Republicans have already fumbled the ball and we aren’t even in 2020 yet. They know they’re in deep trouble ‘given the polarizing nature of the President’ and expect ‘Republicans will refuse to turnout during the General Election because they don’t want to vote for him.’ The Texas Republican Party is desperate. That’s why they’re going negative, building a fake diversity video, and regretting their decision to eliminate straight-ticket voting.

“Texas is the biggest battleground state and Texas Democrats are poised to win in 2020.”
