Texas GOP approves measure declaring Biden ‘was not legitimately elected’

The Texas Republican Party adopted a new platform declaring that the 2020 election violated the Constitution and President Biden “was not legitimately elected.”

The Texas GOP adopted the 40-page platform at its biennial convention in Houston, which concluded this weekend.

“We reject the certified results of the 2020 presidential election, and we hold that acting President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. was not legitimately elected by the people of the United States,” the platform reads.

James Wesolek, the Texas GOP’s communications director, told The Hill that the resolution passed by voice vote.

The platform claims that “substantial election fraud in key metropolitan areas” affected results in five states, swinging the election in Biden’s favor. 

The party also claimed various secretaries of state, who serve as the top elections official in many states, “illegally circumvented” state legislatures, committing constitutional violations.

“We strongly urge all Republicans to work to ensure election integrity and to show up to vote in November of 2022, bring your friends and family, volunteer for your local Republicans and overwhelm any possible fraud,” the platform states.

There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election, and a coalition of leading federal and state election officials said the contest was the “most secure” election in American history.
