Texas GOP Expects Hot Debate Before Voting On Party Platform Saturday
In meeting rooms and hallways at the Texas Republican Party Convention, delegates Friday hotly argued over whether a guest worker program should remain in their party platform. Gay Republicans fought to eliminate a plank that suggested reparative therapy be available for those who want to escape their gay "lifestyle."
Delegates will openly debate and pass the party platform Saturday before ending their three-day convention in Fort Worth.
State Sen. Dan Patrick of Houston, the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor, is also scheduled to address the crowd.
