    Texas Supreme Court rejects Republican bid to hold in-person convention

    The Texas Supreme Court shot down the state Republican Party's appeal to allow its convention to be held in person during the coronavirus pandemic. In a 7-1 ruling, the justices upheld Houston's refusal to host the convention on Monday, which occurred after Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, a Democrat, canceled the party's annual convention late last week, citing increased public health concerns as COVID-19 cases surge in Texas.

    “Mayor Turner was explicit in his objective to dig through our contract and try to find a way, any way, to shut us down,” the GOP said. “Mayor Turner changed Health Department guidelines to impose additional requirements on the Republican Party that he did not impose on other organizations.”
