Abraham George, chairman of the Collin County GOP (CCGOP), got involved in the Republican Party when he realized the party’s values echoed his own.
At just 16 years old, Abraham immigrated with his family to the U.S. from India as soon as he finished high school. As an adult, when Abraham prepared to vote in the 2008 presidential election, he said members of the minority community were expected to align with the Democratic Party and vote for Barack Obama.
But, he didn’t agree with Obama or his policies. Though the narrative was to support him and the Democrat Party, Abraham realized he needed to do more research, which led him to get involved with the Republican Party. The Dallas County GOP headquarters was near his office at the time, so he went in and offered to help.
He has also served as credentials chair for the 2020 precinct and senate district conventions and as vice chairman of the Collin County Republican Party. In 2020, during the state convention, he was elected to represent Senate District 8 in the State Republican Executive Committee. He was elected to be the Chairman of Collin County Republican Party in November of 2021, and his term ends in June of 2024.
Abraham sees the U.S. as the last bastion of freedom and opportunity in the world, saying “The rest of the world wants to come to the U.S. because they see this country as a chance for freedom and opportunity. And if we don’t protect that, there’s nowhere else for us to go.”
Abraham started a software firm in 2012 specializing in healthcare management. He is married to Jeena, a registered nurse, and they live in Parker with their two children.
