The resignation of Republican Party of Texas Chairman Allen West has created a vacancy which will be filled by the 62 member State Republican Executive Committee at their next meeting. One of the candidates for RPT Chairman, David Covey, joins Robert Coats and Reagan Reed for a special interview edition of Rock the Boat.
During the interview, Covey discusses his background serving the Republican Party in various positions, starting as a volunteer and precinct chair, and why he thinks his experience makes him the best fit to lead the state party. He is currently the County Chairmen of Orange County, State Republican Executive Committeeman for Senate District 3, and the President of the Texas Republican County Chairmen’s Association.
Coats and Reed ask Covey about party fundraising, messaging, and advocating for legislative priorities. Towards the end Coats asks Covey a personal question, and Reed wraps up the interview with a philosophical question about the purpose of political parties.
After the interview, Coats and Reed return for a post-mortem analysis where they discuss their thoughts and reactions to Covey’s answers. Tune in for a fascinating and meaty show that you will not want to miss!
