Led by Jason Delgado, a previous Galveston County Republican Party Precinct chair, the Galveston County Conservatives are a group of conservative Republicans who are active in the Republican party and committed to furthering conservative principles.
We believe that leaders like Barry Goldwater & Ronald Reagan pioneered and popularized the principles of fiscal responsibility and accountability, strong national and personal defense, limited government and freedom…the principles that are aligned with the vision of our Founding Fathers and which are largely responsible for America’s greatness.
We believe that its not enough to simply vote Republican. Republicans can and often will stray from our conservative principles. Therefore, our mission is to identify and promote the candidates who share our principles and then hold them accountable once elected. By doing so, our hope is to find and promote the next generation of bold conservative leaders; that among us are our own versions of Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin), Marco Rubio (R-Florida).
