Republicans in Texas adopted a party platform over the weekend that rejects the results of the 2020 presidential election, calls homosexuality “an abnormal lifestyle choice” and rebukes GOP senators who recently negotiated a bipartisan gun agreement.
Texans approved the far-right platform during the Texas State Republican Convention, which ended Saturday.
The more than 270 resolutions were presented in a 40-page document that states the Texas Republican Party believes the election of Joe Biden as the 46th president of the United States violated the Constitution and that there was “substantial election fraud in key metropolitan areas.”
The party approved the unfounded and debunked election fraud allegations while calling on all Republicans to “ensure election integrity.”
Republican-led states have been seeking to implement voting restrictions as election integrity measures in the wake of former President Donald Trump losing the 2020 general election, which Trump administration officials deemed it to have been the most secure in U.S. history.
