Who are we? - Montgomery county (Texas) Republican supporters who value and respect the Texas GOP platform.

What are we trying to accomplish? - Remove from office those individuals who would use the GOP party to get into office when they have no intentions of voting in step with the Texas GOP party platform. We want Republicans to support most of the Texas GOP platform.

Who "leads" each county with regard to this project? - Montgomery county (Texas) Republicans who want to promote the principles found within the Texas Republican party platform. County leaders must support 80% or more of the platform.

Whose "endorsement" of this project is documented? - Texas Republican Precinct Chairs (past, past candidate, present, running) who support the Texas GOP platform. This project is an effort to find out from all the GOP candidates running if they support, or oppose, or are undecided on the Texas GOP platform.

Was this voted on by the Texas GOP? - yes and no. Yes the Texas GOP convention has debated and voted on this many of the last 20 years of state conventions, in "Rule 43". The rules committee / convention delegation has not voted this project into existence. The project exists because many Republicans believe that those who run as Republicans should respect and support the party platform.
