In the wake of resignations by two Log Cabin Republicans of Texas state chairs since May 1, the chairman and vice chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Texas announced today that the organization’s membership has voted to disassociate RLCT from the Freedom First Republicans Coalition, of which Log Cabin is a member.

Freedom First Republicans Coalition is an “alliance of Republican organizations united in the their advance of Republican principles of limited government and the protection of the liberties promised by the Bill of Rights, and dedicated to exposing the false choices of the progressive left that so often needlessly split Republicans,” according to the FFRC Facebook page.

Former Log Cabin Republicans of Texas Chair Marco Antonio Roberts of Houston announced May 6 that he was resigning from that position.

Roberts told Dallas Voice at the time that while he didn’t feel it was “appropriate for me to say too much about the internal matters of LCR,” he made the decision to resign because “over the last year it became clear to me that national and I were not on the same page, not so much about policy, although I would say I probably have some new concerns about that, but more about matters of governance and how policies are arrived at that claim to represent LGBT and allied conservatives and across the country.” Following Roberts’ resignation, Michael Cargill was appointed as acting chair for LCR Texas.
