SUGAR LAND, TX — Fort Bend County Republican Party Chairman Bobby Eberle issued the following statement in response to a text message (see screen shot) which was delivered on Friday, February 2, 2024.
“I strongly condemn the text message campaign recently distributed to voters in Fort Bend County which seeks to disparage our Muslim brothers and sisters who we call our friends and neighbors. Fort Bend County is the most diverse county in the entire state of Texas, and the only way we can move forward in a positive direction is to show warmth and respect for all residents of the county regardless of religious affiliation.
“The primary election season is always tough, and campaigns can be hard-hitting affairs. Regardless, we must always hold ourselves and our Party to the highest standards, and that includes special interest groups. This group is not affiliated in any way with the Fort Bend County Republican Party and trying to divide people based on religion (or other factors) in an effort to score political points is a tactic that the Democrats use. I stand alongside my Muslim friends and those across Fort Bend County of all faiths.”
