Republicans in Texas formally rejected President Joe Biden’s election in 2020 as illegitimate and voted in a state-wide convention that wrapped up this weekend on a party platform that calls homosexuality an “abnormal lifestyle choice.”

The party’s embrace of unfounded electoral fraud accusations in a bedrock Republican state came as a bipartisan congressional committee attempts to definitively and publicly debunk the false notion that Biden did not win the election.

Biden got 7 million more votes than rival Donald Trump. Biden further received 306 votes from the Electoral College, over the 270 required to win.

The congressional committee probing the Jan. 6, 2021 assault on the U.S. Capitol is building a case that Trump’s attempts to overturn his defeat in the 2020 presidential election — including by denying he lost — amounted to a conspiracy to illegally hold onto power.

Trump, the 45th U.S. president, has denied any wrongdoing.

“We reject the certified results of the 2020 presidential election, and we hold that acting President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. was not legitimately elected by the people of the United States,” the Texas party announced in a resolution, passed in a voice vote at its convention.

Texas is a significant player in U.S. national politics, with 38 electoral votes, the second-highest after California. Voters there have supported Republican presidents for the past four decades.

The White House had no comment.

According to a recent Reuters/Ipsos survey, roughly two-thirds of Republicans think that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Trump. State and federal judges dismissed over 50 lawsuits brought by Trump and his allies questioning the election while reviews and audits found no evidence of widespread fraud.

One of the proposed principles in the latest Texas Republican party platform further includes new language denouncing homosexuality and voicing opposition to “all efforts to validate transgender identity.”

“Homosexuality is an abnormal lifestyle choice,” it reads, a statement that is not in the 2020 platform.

Votes on the provision are being tallied and certified following the bi-annual state party convention, a party spokesperson stated.

The Log Cabin Republicans of Houston, an organization that represents LGBT conservatives, announced it was once again denied a request to set up a booth at the party’s convention this week, as it has been for past conventions. The group called the Texas Republican Convention’s actions “not just narrow-minded, but politically short-sighted.”

Although the group is seeing “no evidence” of other state Republican conventions adopting similar bans or exclusionary language, Charles Moran, Log Cabin Republican managing director, explained to Reuters.
