Tom Mechler Trampling on First Amendment Rights of Conservative Media

Statement from
The Republican Party of Texas has denied media credentials to cover the state convention in Dallas on May 12-14.
In 2014, took the unprecedented and historical step of covering the Republican Party of Texas State Convention in Fort Worth, wall to wall. RER was the first media organization to provide live, audio-streamed coverage of the platform floor debate, literally blanketing the convention floor with reporters. Perhaps for the first time in Texas GOP history, full entry was given to any citizen of Texas that wanted to observe the RPT political process.
