Texas GOP Suggests Secession

Objectivity 4.2 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.8

Texas Republicans have suggested their state legislature should call for a vote in 2023 to decide if the state should secede from the rest of the country.  Page 32 of the Texas GOP platform says, “we urge the Texas Legislature to pass a bill in its next session requiring a referendum in the 2023 general election for the people of Texas to determine whether or not the State of Texas should reassert its status as an independent nation.”  In the resolution, the Texas GOP pointed at the 2020 election as a fraudulent process and declared Joe Biden as an illegitimate president.
