Texas Senator Jane Nelson and State Representative Tan Parker gathered at the Lantana Golf Club Tuesday evening for a voter registration drive to encourage Denton County Republicans to vote in the upcoming election. Senator Nelson stressed the importance of a turn-around in voting trends from Democrat votes back to Republican votes. Nelson recognized Denton County’s potential for Republican voters. With Denton’s rapid growth, its GOP turnout is crucial to the entire state. The Republicans hold both houses in the state legislature and a majority in Denton County.
