Texas GOP Chairman Allen West has submitted his resignation as head of the state party, effective July 11.

“It has been my distinct honor to serve as Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas. I pray Godspeed for this governing body,” said West.

According to a statement from the Republican Party of Texas:

Lt. Col. Allen West will take this opportunity to prayerfully reflect on a new chapter in his already distinguished career. We know that wherever he goes next, he will continue to be a bulwark against progressive socialism and a champion for the principles of Texas and our American Republic.

 

The Republican Party of Texas wishes to express our sincere gratitude for his numerous contributions during his tenure. His efforts have been greatly appreciated by staff and grassroots alike.

West was elected as chairman in July 2020. In recent months, speculation has begun to grow surrounding a possible campaign for governor.

A replacement chair of the Republican Party of Texas will be selected by members of the State Republican Executive Committee on July 11.
