The Texas Federation of Republican Women (TFRW) is a volunteer army unmatched by any other women's organization. TFRW makes it possible for women to influence how local, state, and federal government manages such critical issues as health, crime, education, taxes and financial security.
The TFRW's long-standing goals of education, training, participation in government, electing Republicans and encouraging Republican women to run for office has helped create a powerful organization that is over 10,000 members strong with 164 Local Clubs across the state of Texas.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this year's convention an outstanding success!

Moving into Primary Season and Getting Closer to Convention!
We look forward to hearing from many of our candidates and elected officials at our TFRW Convention in Lubbock. This will allow us to determine which candidates will earn our vote next spring.
Can you believe that we are entering into the 2016 Primary season? As we see how races develop and what candidates emerge, please remember that TFRW and its member clubs must abide by our Bylaws and Standing Rules.
Standing Rule 7:
Questions arise regarding Standing Rule 7 when clubs and TFRW members wish to campaign for one Republican candidate over another Republican candidate. What you do personally is fine, unless you are a Club President or Club Campaign Activities VP, in which case you must remain silent in accordance with TFRW Bylaws. A Club President also has the responsibility of monitoring all club publications (including your website and newsletter) and eliminating any articles which may seem to endorse one Republican candidate over another. This action during our Primary season assures each Republican candidate an equal opportunity to campaign and have their information reach club members.
Standing Rule 7 covers the period beginning 90 days prior to the start of filing for office. Many candidates may not yet have officially filed for the office but have filed a treasurer's appointment and advertise themselves as candidates. We must be vigilant and aware of these "early candidates." And yes – if they have an official Treasurer – they do count as a candidate.
During the period covered by the rule, it becomes necessary to consider articles written by candidates as "exposure" to your club members. However, if an informational article is written so that club members are unaware that it comes from a candidate or his or her staff, it should not present a problem.
If you are using your own private email list, and you are NOT a Club President or Campaign Activities VP, what you do with your own list is not a problem as long as there is no confusion between your private email circulation and your club’s official business.
