Last night at the Southwest Broward Republican Organization(SWBRO), former Mayor of Davie Tom Truex formally announced that he would be seeking the Chairman’s position at the Broward Republican Executive Committee (BREC). The election will be held next month, December 6th, to replace outgoing Chairwoman Cindy Guerra, who was voted into the position earlier this year- Guerra’s election was mired in controversy and further fueled the animosity between rival factions within the BREC.
Mayor Truex is a well respected Republican and considered to be a true conservative, unlike many ‘moderate’ opportunists that are entrenched in the local GOP. Truax mentioned that the GOP needed to reach out and help all Republican candidates, and even went as far as to mention Senator George LeMieux-LeMieux is rumored to throw his hat in the ring for Senate next year. Because of his Conservative bona fides, Truex will be able to garner the support of many BREC members that have long been disappointed with the direction of the local party has gone in.
