Texas GOP Chairman Allen West announced his resignation Friday morning, raising speculation he could run for statewide office.
West, who took over the party in July 2020, will remain chair until a successor is picked on July 11, the party said.
“It has been my distinct honor to serve as Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas. I pray Godspeed for this governing body,” he said in a statement.
The party said in a statement that West “will take this opportunity to prayerfully reflect on a new chapter in his already distinguished career.”
