Texas gay Republican group chair resigns over GOP’s new platform

LCR Texas leadership’s resignations come amid backlash against the state GOP’s new platform—some of it coming from high-ranking national party members. Florida Sen. Rick Scott, who helms the GOP’s Senate elections committee, said he “would not have supported” the homophobic language on Wednesday.

Scott also confirmed that he accepts the results of the 2020 election as valid and the Biden administration as legitimate. Texas Republicans parroted former president Donald Trump’s lie that widespread voter fraud cost him the election and declared President Biden an illegitimate leader in their new platform.

Former Ohio governor and 2016 Republican presidential candidate John Kasich called the Texas GOP convention a “clown show” on CNN Monday, adding that “I think even clowns were embarrassed by what they saw down there.”
