Lubbock County Republican Party Chairman Steve Evans released a statement on Thursday concerning the controversy between Texas House Speaker Dennis Bonnen and Michael Quinn Sullivan of Empower Texans.

Evans says that the LCRP declines to comment until the entire audio recording of the conversation between Bonnen, Sullivan and Representative Dustin Burrows of Lubbock has been released.

He also says that he has joined in calls by the media for the recording to be released to the general public.

KFYO's Chad Hasty interviewed Representative Jonathan Stickland on Thursday in relation to the same topic Evans is speaking of. You can find the entire interview here.
