In response to a Latino Rebels story about Facebook comments about apartheid by Texas Republican Party executive committee member Sara Legvold, we received a statement this afternoon from Spencer Yeldell, Communications Director for the Republican Party of Texas:
Executive Committee members are entitled to their own opinions that may or may not be aligned with the Republican Party of Texas’ official platform. The RPT does not agree with Ms. Legvold’s opinions on this matter and we have been very aggressive in our outreach efforts to minority communities over the past year. We recently hired full time African American and Asian American engagement staff, as well as multiple additional Hispanic engagement staff in our Victory Centers across the state.
