The El Paso Politics asked the El Paso Republican Party for comment about the legitimacy of the Joe Biden administration and the social media controversy involving the Republicans. Because of the national controversy about the recent elections, the El Paso Politics reached out to the local Republican party for comment.

On Monday morning, we contacted the leadership of the El Paso Republican Party and asked:

What is the local Republican party’s official position on the results of the last presidential election? Specifically, we asked for a comment “about the legitimacy of Joe Biden as the president-elect.”

We also asked, what was the party’s position on the blocking and removal of individuals by social media companies because of political statements.

Via email, local party officials wrote that they would be holding a meeting to discuss the two controversies late on Monday. According to Rick Seeberger, the Chairman of the El Paso Republican Party in an email response wrote that the “CEC leadership” would prepare the “official stand” on the two questions we posed.

Having not received a follow up by Tuesday, we asked again for a comment on the two questions we had posed.

Rick Seeberger responded to both questions with:

No comment.

In his Tuesday email, Seeberger added that “the items were not addressed last night due to time limitation… therefore no comment.”

Joe Biden is scheduled to be sworn into office today at 10:00 a.m., El Paso time as the next president.

From our communications with the leadership of the El Paso Republican Party, the party has “no comment” on the legitimacy of the incoming Joe Biden administration.
