Elections in Brazoria
The Christian Democratic Party (Spanish: Partido Demócrata Cristiano), commonly known as the Christian Democrats (Spanish: Demócratas cristianos) and the Christ-Dems and abbreviated as the CDP, is a center-right political party in Brazoria. The party is a Christian democratic liberal conservative political party that was founded in 1891 and is the oldest active political parties in Brazoria and the largest conservative party at 10 million members as of 2018.
The Christian Democrats were founded in January 1891 by James Hogg who was later elected Chancellor in 1892. The party grew over the years and by the turn of the 20th century, the Christian Democrats were one of the largest parties next to the National Party (later became the One Nation Party) and the Workers' Party. The party was very influential throughout the 20th century especially during both the World Wars and the Cold War and helped Brazoria rise to become a major power in Anglo-America and its ascension into the Conference of American States. By the 1980s, the party would cement itself as one of the biggest players in Brazorian politics next to the Moderate Party and Workers' Party and is the primary political rival of both the Democratic Socialist Party and the United Green-Red Party.
The party is currently lead by Charles Valdes as its current leader since 2010 and its current chair has been Patrick Moore since 2014. The party currently holds 32 seats in the National Diet and is part of the Grand Democratic Coalition due to neither party having any clear legislative majority in the legislature. The Christian Democrats currently hold four seats out of Brazoria's 21 in the American Parliament and six governors are members of the Christian Democrats. The party's base is generally centered around much of the center of the country, some cities, rural communities and regular provinces.
