Red Dawn: Why SA is the GOP’s Best Bet for the Future

Bexar County GOP chairman Robert Stovall with state Rep. Joe Straus at the grand opening of the Bexar County GOP headquarters last week


Stovall says that’s why we’ve seen so many luminaries here lately, including one of his personal favorites, George P. Bush, who combines his Hispanic background with his father’s storied last name (he’s the son of Jeb Bush), and is running for Land Commissioner. National money will likely also pour in on account of the rematch between SA-based Tea Partier Quico Canseco and Alpine Democrat Pete Gallego. Gallego upset the incumbent Canseco last year for the U.S. District 23 congressional seat. In 2012, the race was considered one of the most competitive in the country, and this year there’s already chatter about a huge RNC presence to help Canseco out.

You can also see the renewed interest in the Bexar County Republicans headquarters itself. Though the organization moved just across the street, it was a symbolic leap. For years, the Party organized out of the dated Petroleum Building on Loop 410. Their new digs are in a more modern office tower across the highway, with a front-desk, conference room, kitchenette and a couple of offices. There’s also what Stovall calls “the war room” with a classy, perpetually set-up photo backdrop flanked by flags, useful for the Party bigwigs who will be dropping by at least through 2014.

In fact, it was put to good use just last week at the headquarters’ grand opening. State Rep. Joe Straus was there to cut the ribbon and the war room was packed. “We know we’re the line in the sand,” Stovall said. “We’re ready for 2014 and 2016.”
