Asche: GOP women are a ‘well-armed militia’

June 14, 2018

SAN ANTONIO — Never tell a Texas woman no.

Especially a Texas Republican woman.

In a speech to the GOP state convention Thursday, Cindy Asche, a longtime member of the Texas Federation of Republican Women who is running to become state party chair, drew loud applause when she told the crowd she has a concealed-handgun permit.

Then, she brought down the house.

“The TFRW is one of the most well-armed militias on the planet Earth,” she said.

The women in the convention hall cheered. Some of the men looked surprised.
