Called the “modern day Will Rogers,” Chad Prather is equally at home on stage or screen, musing on pop culture topics from politics, and family life to whatever inspires him on that day. Prather's hilarious YouTube feeds are picked up by hundreds of thousands of fans as well as media: he has been on CNN, Fox News, BlazeTV, etc. But it's what you haven't seen that makes Chad an impressive candidate. When asked about his accomplishments Chad responded,
"Yes. I’ve built a hugely successful entertainment business. I’ve also built a great apparel company. I have a social media following that’s counted in the millions and over a billion video views. Most people know all that.
Do you know that I pastored three churches? Do you know that I spent over a decade in third world countries doing mission, humanitarian, and medical work? Do you know that I was an executive with a Fortune 300 company? Do you know that I taught seminary (Master’s) level Greek? Do you know that I’ve served on numerous boards including American Valor with the family of Chris Kyle?
I could continue but I think you get the point. For a guy that’s never done anything and has no experience…I’ve done a few things."

The Republican Primary In Texas
On Tuesday, March 1, 2022, after the statute-specified period of early voting and absentee voting, the primary elections of the Republican Party will take place throughout Texas.
A primary election is an election in which registered voters in their county of residence will select candidates that they believe should represent the Republican Party for certain elected office to run in the general election on Tuesday, November 8, 2022.
In the primary elections in Texas, registered voters will select candidates for certain Federal offices, State offices and County offices. The primary elections are also used to select party convention delegates and party leaders. Candidates for these offices have to meet the requirements of the office and file by the deadline in December 2021 in order to appear on the ballot.
The State of Texas employs an open primary system. In this system, voters do not have to register with a party in advance to participate in that party's primary. The voter must sign a pledge stating the following (the language below is taken directly from state statutes):
“The following pledge shall be placed on the primary election ballot above the listing of candidates' names: 'I am a Republican and understand that I am ineligible to vote or participate in another political party's primary election or convention during this voting year.”
