Dickey Succeeding Amarilloan Mechler as GOP Chair

James Dickey is the new chairman of the Texas Republican Party.

Dickey, who won the race for the state chair, previously served as county chairman for Travis County. Dickey defeated Rick Figueroa, a Houston businessman.

Dickey will now take office as the county prepares for the 2018 statewide elections. A major issue in the race for county chairman was the candidates' support for President Donald Trump.

Dickey will be succeeding Amarilloan Tom Mechler.
