 GOP Primary Election

The twenty-sixth biennial Montgomery County Republican Party Primary election was hampered by a winter ice storm that descended on Montgomery County on March 4th. There were multiple power outages across the County and ice covered roads that undoubtedly depressed the voter turnout. "Some polling locations had no voters until almost noon, negating the usual heavy early morning turnout", County Chairman Dr. Wally Wilkerson said. "I was anticipating an election-day turnout of 25,000 voters". A total of 43,510 voters cast ballots in the Primary, 25,238 during early voting period and 18,182 on election-day that included 21 provisional ballots counted by the Ballot Board. No problems were reported with the Voter ID rule. "The Party is deeply indebted to every election worker for   the conduct of the Primary under unusual conditions", Wilkerson added.


The most votes cast for all candidates in any race on the ballot were 42,454 for Lt. Governor. The second most votes cast were 42,251 for Governor. The candidate who received the most votes in a contested race was Attorney General Greg Abbott for Governor. He received 39,595 votes. Congressman Kevin Brady received the second most votes in a contested race with 26,851 votes. The unopposed candidate with most votes was County Clerk Mark Turnbull with 31,602 votes. District Clerk Barbara Gladden Adamick received the second most votes in an unopposed race with 31,514 votes.


With results of the General Primary, the Party will have four statewide offices on the May 27th Runoff Primary ballot; Lt. Governor, Attorney General, Railroad Commissioner and Agriculture Commissioner; one County office, County Judge; one District Office, State House District #16; and two Precinct offices, County Commissioner Precinct #2 and Precinct #4. All eighty-nine polling locations will be open for this important election on election-day. Voters qualified to vote by mail ballot during the early voting period, will automatically receive a mail ballot provided they checked both the Primary and Runoff Primary boxes on the mail ballot application.

A list of Senatorial District Delegates and Alternates are posted to the County Party website at www.mcrp.org. The Convention will certify the permanent roll of Convention Delegates, adopt Party Rules, approve a Platform and elect State Party officers and sixty-two State Executive Committee members at their respective Senatorial District Caucuses.


Senate District #4 Committeewoman, Rosemary Roe, will stand for re-election as will Senate District #3 Committeewoman, Judy Parada and Committeeman Jim Wiggins. Senate District #4 Committeeman Michael Truncale is term limited and will not be a candidate for re-election. Senate District #3 includes the Lake area of Montgomery County along with18 other East Texas counties. Senate District #4 includes the remainder of Montgomery County, an eastern part of Harris County, ChambersCounty and most of Jefferson County.


The State Convention is a special political event that serves to energize, unify and prepare Republicans for the November General election where Democrats will be the opponents. The Convention will hear from Republican officeholders, such as U. S. Senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul and Governor Rick Perry, along with candidates, who will help accomplish these goals. A presidential straw poll and a Party Banquet Gala will be some of the highlights of the Convention. If any Republican would like to attend the Convention as a guest, they may register by accessing the State GOP website at www.texasgop.org.
