Houston Newsmakers: Serve America Movement registers as political party in Texas
It is called the Serve America Movement and it has now applied for recognition as a political party in Texas. Former Houston Mayoral candidate Bill King is the Party’s Founding State Chair and says his party is seeking those who want nothing to do with radical fringe politics. “All the polling shows the vast majority of Americans are in the middle of the political spectrum,” he said. “It’s only the people who are on the ideological fringes, which is unfortunately what controls the primary election, that drives this narrative that somehow we’re a divided people.” Former GOP Congressman David Jolly is the Executive Chairman of the party and says the SAM party is a logical destination for people who want to see progress over hyper partisanship. “We’re the only big tent party in the United States of America today,” he said. “We want moderates, progressives, conservatives, provided you are committed to the basic problem solving construct that government should reflect, that you’re committed to transparency and accountability, that’s SAM.” See much more about this new party sinking national roots, including Texas on this week’s Houston Newsmakers EXTRA.
