The resolution was brought to the floor of the convention, but a motion to table it was made by Senator Royce West before anyone was allowed to discuss the proposal.

The Texas One-Step Resolution

Whereas the TDP rules state that the “State Democratic Executive Committee shall carry on the activities of the Party between State Conventions in compliance with the law and with the directives of the Convention”;

Be it resolved that, effective January 1, 2009, the Texas Democratic Party eliminate the allocation of presidential delegates by caucus, in favor of all pledged presidential delegates being selected by the voice of the people as expressed by the voters in the Democratic Primary;

Be it also resolved that, upon adoption of this resolution by the Texas Democratic Party State Convention, which is the highest governing authority of the Texas Democratic Party, the State Democratic Executive Committee is directed and bound by this resolution to adopt a Texas National Delegate Selection Plan for the 2012 presidential year under which all pledged national delegates shall be allocated based on the results of the popular vote in the 2012 Texas presidential primary.
