Tonight, the Republican Party of Texas held a tele-town hall to discuss the impact of coronavirus on the RPT 2020 State Convention currently scheduled for May 14-16 in Houston.

During the tele-town hall, RPT Chairman James Dickey announced that the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston and its nearby hotels are available July 13-18 to accommodate the State Party in moving the State Convention from its May dates to July in order to abide by the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) recommendation to suspend all events 50 persons or greater for the next eight weeks.

The move is pending approval by the State Republican Executive Committee on April 4th.

Heeding President Trump’s advice from his press conference this afternoon, Chairman Dickey strongly recommended all Convention meetings scheduled for March 21st adjourn until a time after the eight week suspension period recommended by the CDC to ensure the health and safety of Texans.

Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick joined the tele-town hall and gave an informative update of the efforts that he, Governor Greg Abbott, and President Trump are taking to defend Texans and Americans from coronavirus.
