    Default Texas Republicans fail to oust Muslim official over religion

    A Republican county official in Texas has survived a vote to oust him after several local party members took issue with his Muslim religion.

    The motion to remove Shahid Shafi from his position as vice chairman of the Tarrant County Republican party failed by a vote of 139-49 on Thursday night.

    The effort was led by several county Republicans who argued that Dr Shafi was more loyal to Islam than the US.

    The movement led to criticism from prominent state Republican officials.

    Speaking to reporters after the vote at a church in Fort Worth, Dr Shafi said: "As an immigrant to this great country, I am honoured and privileged to receive the support of my fellow Republicans."

    If it had been a Christian, it would have been a righty victory. It was a Muslim though, so it was a lefty victory.
