I don't know Texas rules, but here in CA, winning the Republican nomination for state and federal races makes you a member of the state republican party and you get to appoint additional members from your district as well.
Winning the [chair of] County Parties and winning the nomination in Blue districts in 2014 will allow a change in direction of the state party.
In 2012, we did not have candidates for all the seats, Finding candidates to win the nomination in these unwinnable seats is my goal for 2014.
