Washington, D.C. & Houston, TX — Log Cabin Republicans of Houston member Christopher Busby has been elected President of the Houston Young Republicans in a hard-fought campaign. Busby was largely responsible for the relaunch of the Log Cabin Republicans presence in Harris County, Texas, and for his unabashed advocacy as a gay Republican in support of LGBT equality.

“It’s always an honor to be selected by your peers for a leadership role,” Busby stated. “I think it’s even more so for such a well-respected and politically active club like the Houston Young Republicans. I campaigned on expanding the influence of the voices of young people within the Republican Party and used my previous experience as Log Cabin Republicans of Houston President to underscore why I had the leadership and experience to grow the Chapter. I’m a believer in the big-tent philosophy and look forward to pushing the upcoming generation into the party process and to positions where their voices can be heard.”

“I’m proud of our Log Cabin Republicans of Houston member Christopher Busby for his election as the new President of the local chapter of the Houston Young Republicans,” Log Cabin Republicans of Houston President Antoine Taylor said.

Log Cabin Republicans National Executive Director Gregory T. Angelo added:

Hearty congratulations to Mr. Busby, who is the latest member of Log Cabin Republicans to be duly elected to a leadership role in a high-profile auxiliary of the GOP. With a looming referendum on LGBT non-discrimination protections headed to the voters of Harris County this fall in the all-important deep red state of Texas, Mr. Busby is well-positioned as President of the Houston Young Republicans to give voice to the common-sense conservative message of inclusive politics resonating among young voters across the Lone Star State.
