Richard Morgan is the Chairman of the Texas Young Republican Federation, the only official Republican Party of Texas auxiliary with a primary focus on the 18-40 age demographic. He also serves as Technology Director for the Dallas County Republican Party and occasionally as a guest blogger for Texas GOP Vote.
Prior to joining the Romney-Ryan 2012 campaign, Richard was a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in the TX-21 Republican Primary. Despite being outspent 300-1 by two opponents with nationwide name ID, he received nearly 6,000 votes and the praise of the Austin American-Statesman Editorial Board, which wrote:
“Morgan struck us as a thoughtful, informed young man. He not only spoke eloquently and reasonably about technology issues, but also about immigration and education, among other topics … if his political interests carry beyond this primary and needling Smith on SOPA, he just might be a future candidate to watch.”
