The Erath County Republican Party had tossed around the idea of opening local headquarters as the midterm elections get closer, but that changed during the committee’s last meeting.

“We decided to not open headquarters,” said Erath County Republican Party chairman Gil Parks. “Instead, we used the money we would have spent on the headquarters and donated it to Ted Cruz’s campaign.”

Locals who would like to pick up signs for Republican candidates can do so at Quality Printing or Custom Cabinets.

“Right now we have signs for Ted Cruz, Mike Conaway and Sid Miller,” Parks said. “We are hoping to get some for Roger Williams and (governor) Greg Abbott.”

Erath County Republicans will host their next meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 1, at the Agave. The public is invited to attend.
