“This is an exciting time to be a Denton County Republican.” said Denton County Republican Party Chairman Dianne Edmondson in the news release. “We have a great slate of local and statewide candidates to get out the vote for this November. Bring your family and friends and come join us on Sept. 14th for a victory rally you’ll be talking about to election night and beyond!”
