The Eyes of Texas Are Upon You!

Michelle Malkin observes that Ragnar of The Jawa Report is liveblogging the Texas Republican Convention, where he reports:
The long and short of it is that a coalition of conservative grassroots activists, fit to be tied with the state party, are seeking to replace the existing party leadership. Background here.
No fireworks yet, but it's just getting kicked off.
Fired-up Lone Star conservatives and online activists everywhere should take note of Ragnar's comment that Americans For Prosperity is making facilities available for bloggers at the TXGOPCon. AFP will sponsor the Right Online Summit July 18-19 in Austin, where the confirmed speakers will include Mrs. Malkin, Robert Novak, John Fund, Stephen Moore, Michael Steele, Red State's Erick Erickson, and Grover Norquist.

Yesterday, I spoke with an AFP official who told me that one of the key focuses of Right Online will be to encourage conservatives to become more engaged in Internet activism, including blogging.
