BLP: On March 4, 2023, the Republican Party of Texas voted to censure Texas Congressman Tony Gonzales over several controversial votes on issues ranging from gun control to border security.
The State Republican Executive Committee passed the censure resolution by a resounding 57-5 vote count. The last time that the Texas GOP censured a party member was in 2018, when it took then-Texas State House Speaker Joe Straus to task for his moves to undermine conservatives in the state house. Straus was also a moderate Republican that represented parts of the San Antonio area.
One of the key legislative actions that Gonzales received heavy criticism for was his vote for a bipartisan gun control law that was passed in the wake of the Uvalde school massacre, which occurred in his district. He stressed that if the vote were held once again, “I would vote twice on it if I could.”
“The reality is I’ve taken almost 1,400 votes, and the bulk of those have been with the Republican Party,” Gonzales said in defending his track record. more
Holy Shit! Ohioans had an Anthony Gonzales (R) just finish a term in Trump country and he was a frikking nightmare! He voted to impeach President Trump among other anti-American votes. What’s with these guys? We have a new Rep, Max Miller, who ran as a conservative….we’ll see
Another strongly worded letter
