Alarming Schism Surfaces in Local County Republican Party~Frankites vs Morganettes


Donald Trump simplified voting in the Presidential election for Hispanic voters in Cameron County with his comments to the right.  There's not any way those remarks could be spun to portray Trump as sympathetic to or understanding of the needs of those of Mexican heritage,  


Former Republican County Chair,
Frank Morris
If the presumptive nominee doesn't make the job of the local Republican Party difficult enough, infighting between those supporting the former and current county chairs simply steepens that uphill climb.

Our recent report, that former county chair Frank Morris stood up at the last Wednesday's meeting of the Brownsville Republican Club to announce his appointments of "area coordinators" for the Trump campaign, has prompted some defensive moves within the local party to stifle, stymie and squelch any Frank Morris influence in local party affairs.


Our GOP source claims that Frank's attempt to usurp or undermine the authority of duly elected county chair Morgan Graham has caught the attention of higher ups in the state party hierarchy.  They are uncomfortable with Morris' attempt to represent the party or its nominee in any way.


Cameron County Republican Chair,
Morgan Graham
Cameron County Republican Chair Morgan Graham has worked hard to connect the local party to social media, promote local candidates and share the party's message and platform.

Party officials are not agreeable with the former chair, Frank Morris, asserting that he still has a position within the local party.  The Trump campaign, we've learned, prefers that Morris work with, not against current chair, Morgan Graham, in his support of Trump. Graham, after all, is an actual Trump delegate to the national convention.


Some have suggested that a resolution be drafted to curb Morris' influence with the local party, to "grant the (county) chairman the authority to use any legal means necessary to enforce an order that an individual (Morris) cease and desist from the use of the word 'Republican' in any of their public or private dealings."

Those party aficionados are worried that Frank Morris will splinter off his close followers, sometimes called "Frankites," into a splinter group that will further weaken the efforts of the red party in an overwhelmingly blue county.(Remember that disgruntled Cynthia Hinojosa, wife of former County Judge Gilberto Hinojosa, formed a splinter group of Cameron Country Democratic women a few years ago.)

While we doubt that anything preventing Frank Morris or anyone else from describing themselves as a Republican would stand a court test, we empathize with the party's difficult struggle.

  4. Frank obviously underestimated her, most likely because she is a female. He is used to just bullying women and stifling them. Her reputation within the party for being a tough spokesperson who can convincingly sway a tin foil hat committee to see reason was apparent at the state convention. Morris is still licking his wounds that he couldn't get Alex Torrez to be his proxy on the state committee and he couldn't get Graham to order delegates to vote his way. Good for her.

    6. Alex Torres with an "S" :you ARE a Mexican but a US CITIZEN big difference. Stop pretending to be white. You look smell and talk MEXICAN. Have respect for your culture for God's sake. Your forefathers are probably rolling around in the graves slapping each other with chanclas hearing you try to act and talk white.

  5. Why can't Frank Morris be appointed to some role in the local party? Just because he is no longer the chairman doesn't mean he can't serve in some capacity. Why waste all that experience and expertise?

    1. They tried that. He tried to steal their headquarters and claim it as his and for the Trump campaign without the campaign even knowing. He has been ordering people to do things that are unethical. Morgan gave him space and he didn't do anything productive in all these months except complain and lie. Frank Morris is untrustworthy and a power hungry control freak.

      Her first mistake was allowing him any involvement at all thinking it would help him bow out gracefully. Frank isn't wise enough to do that. The moment she wouldn't continue his unethical practices he began to sow the seeds of discord. He is infamous and hated in surrounding counties for his underhanded tactics. When she lifted the ban on recording devices there was grumbling from the floor by the three dinosaurs who follow his every order without question.

      Frankites are cult followers and they don't give a damn about what is right.

    2. She gave him an inch and he took ten miles but still accomplished nothing. He didn't do shit for candidates and denied them access to money from the state party just because he wanted control. He screwed over local Republican candidates.

      Delete
    3. Experience and expertise you say? Frank Morris abruptly left the party leaving it broke and without a blueprint for a leadership transition. Frank Morris did little to grow the party and to bring others into the Republican fold. He spent his time praying for a democrat to switch parties to run. The party is better off without Frank Morris in any capacity.

      Delete
    4. Frank Morris resigned so many times and didn't give a shit about the party or the people. Every choice he makes is about settling grudges against the state party and he couldn't get Morgan to cooperate with his made up conspiracy theory. He's out of touch and now he is trying to use Hispanics to make his own party.

    5. Who really know Frank Norris? He and the Flunkenites will once again leave the party well just say if politics had party lonestar benefits, they'd qualify for the maximum! He and his bad hair should not be involved in anything.

  6. Frank and his fat bitch Alex have been running around looking like Laurel and Harding. The difference is that Laurel and Harding were funny, these two are only laughably pathetic.

    1. Putting the personalities aside, the party actually did better under Frank Morris. For the first time we had a Republican County Judge. What Republican has won an election under Morgan Graham?

    2. Carlos Cascos got himself elected along with his volunteers. Frank Morris and the party didn't do SHIT!!!

    3. The party is stronger than ever under Morgan.Viva Lady Chair!

  9. Cascos didn't need the party, the party needed him. Morris just took credit for him winning. And who actively supported him and does to this day? Morgan Graham. Hell, didn't he even swear her into office?

    And there hasn't even been a general election. Graham just got elected. If their candidate get slaughtered, it's because it's a Presidential year and you idiots vote straight ticket Democrat then bitch about corruption.

    1. Looks like Morgan's already got her concession speech for November. We'd do well to have Frank back, he got James Matz, Mike Barbarena, and Pete Degadillo elected to county office. He was a trusted advisor to George W. Bush during his time as Governor. Also, no one wanted to take a risk on Ted Cruz until Frank endorsed him as an SREC. And what's Morgan's record again?

      Unless we look at her poor handling of the Chambers disqualification.

    6. IS THIS IDIOT ALEX TRYING TO CREDIT FRANK FOR TED CRUZ? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

      Pere Delgadillo had to drag the old man out of his house because he didn't want to do the recount. Oh! And let's also remember that Morgan hasn't been in long enough for there to BE an election. But she has accomplished much, like getting everybody to work together except this divisive Alexis chick.

      Delete
    7. She got Rene DeCoss appointed, by the way, when Frank was trying to get it for Oscar Garcia who he KNEW was running as a Democrat. Frank wasn't the chairman anymore, and was hoping Morgan wouldn't find out THAT little backstab.

      Delete
  10. Frank has three or four people willing to do whatever he wants. It's isn't alarming at all. He's just a little annoying splinter that can't get under Morgan's skin because she's a unifying factor. He was always a divider and I'm happy that we have a chairman who will let us record meetings.

  11. It seems like to me that a lot of these pro-Morgan comments are being written by the same person.

    1. Yes, Jim Barton is doing it. We all know that. He's a Republican, you know. (Hoping that liberals Juan Montoya and Jerry McHale don't see this. They may not know of Barton's closeted politics.)

    2. Nope I'm a Democrat and even I know Morgo has her shit together. Some of them may not have a clue on how to strengthen the party but she does. I'm just a woman who admires another womans strength. I'd actually like to see Jessica as party chair someday. I think she would do great.

  12. You won't see any negative comments on the Morgan on this blog. Right Jimbo?

  14. Morris looks dead in that picture, has anybody checked his pulse lately?

  15. Why is it so hard to believe there are many of us who like Morgan Graham Miguel? Because she doesn't take crap from anyone? Or because she has unified the party? Maybe because she can stand firm and is not easily intimidated? I'm neither here nor there in any party but if I had to choose I would choose Team Morgan. Why would I choose that Frank guy? You've read about his past. Hell no. I don't care if you think I'm me or someone else ANY FOOL CAN SEE SHE ROCKS as a Party Chair. -Becky

  16. Morgan is not the face of Brownsville republicans. Frank Morris is. Graham is a social butterfly who flits about town as if a soccer mom. Frank wears the scars of bygone political battles. And I do NOT want to see a Mexican as head of our county GOP. That is absurd on many levels.

    1. Just by the way you've described Morgan Graham tells me one of two things. Either you're a LIAR and wabtbto discredit her by saying lies and ridiculous ones at that or two YOU DON'T KNOW HER AT ALL which basically goes hand in hand with one. I don't know her too well but even I can say that's a bullshit comment. You're a fool for saying it and my guess is your a paid one or maybe not. Maybe you just take pleasure in talking lies about people but I can tell you those of us who see her see that she moves her ass and gets things done and only that is the reason so many people back her and defend her. Stop hating. Morris had his chance and blew it a couple of times. In with the new.
