Running unopposed, Rinaldi will continue to serve as chairman of the party for the next two years. 

As the Republican Party of Texas Convention continues, delegates from across the state have officially re-elected current Texas GOP Chairman Matt Rinaldi. 

A former member of the Texas House, Rinaldi was chosen to lead the Texas GOP following Allen West’s departure from the role last July, ahead of his unsuccessful gubernatorial bid.

Rinaldi took the reins and charged forward, endorsing for the first time in “nonpartisan” school board races and embracing the party’s legislative priorities throughout the primary election season. 

Rinadli ran unopposed as the party’s chair, a departure from the often contentious contests for the position in conventions past.

After officially winning the race, Rinaldi thanked the delegates for their support and offered a few words.

“This is truly an honor being your party chair, and as I serve a full term as party chair, I promise to continue to manage a very strong party to take us through our 2022 elections and continue to advocate for our legislative priorities.”
