Lieutenant Colonel Allen B. West (U.S. Army retired) joined The Chad Hasty Show on Tuesday morning to talk about issues and his candidacy to be elected as Republican Party Chairman for the state of Texas.

West, a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives, is challenging current party chairman James Dickey in the 2020 election, and is campaigning to make his views and plans known throughout the state.

West and Hasty discussed several topics, including the overall political situation in the United States and Texas, and the fight to keep conservatives in control of Texas government. West also talked about the long history of conflict between the United States and Iran, and the significance of the killing of the former commander of Iran's Quds Force, General Qassim Soleimani.

While speaking about the looming battle for conservatives in Texas, West said,

Texas is being targeted by the other side...We have a fight here in Texas, and I tend to believe that the way that Texas goes is that way that the United States of America goes.
