I was born in San Francisco and grew up in Anaheim. I really didn't have much interest in politics in those days.Other than Pres Reagan anyway.My wife turned me on to rush limbaugh and the rest as they say is history.Some Consider me a hard core conservative.I don't,yes I am a conseravtive but I'm more open minded than the hard core ones.For 10 years we lived in skagit county during that time I was a pco Area chair and county yr chairman.Since my wife and I moved to Kent almost 3 years ago the fargo precinct in the 47th district where we make our home has sat empty.Its been actually 5-6 years since its been vacant. The King Gop doesn't like me so empty the fargo precinct sits.

Across The Great State GOP Divide

Good Evening, Its been quite sometime since I posted a story last.
So here it comes three weeks ago the Washington State Republican
party had there most recent quarterly state committee meeting.As part
of that meeting they elected a new State vice chairman. The race was
between Joe Elenbaas State committeeman from Whatcom county and Rep
Cathy McMorris's brother. Sorry despite many attempts I have been
unable to get Mr McMorris's first name.Anyway prior to the vote taking
place McMorris's people (ie the party leadership and establishment crowd)
told the person who was to give the nominating speech for Mr Elenbaas that if he had any
aspirations of running for the state legislature that he would not give the nominating speech. If he didn't they would make sure that he would never be
able to hold another office. So he didn't give the Speech.

This is just unbelievable that anyone in the state GOP would do such
a thing. Has this party really sunk that low now?These people have run
this Party into the ground and still they think they have a divine right
to any political office they want.I guess are illustrious state chairwoman
Diane Tebelius thinks that the State legislative isn't winnable.She has
moved close to 300.000 thousand dollars to the State Parties federal account.
It would appear as though Diane is resting her whole reelection chances
on Mike McGavick winning.Giving the State legislative races a grand
total of 5,500 thousand dollars.In addition to that the state party has recently
sent out a new flier telling us to vote for State GOP because there
pro life. Its pretty clear that its an attempt to convince the party base that
Mike McGavick is Pro-life. When in reality he isn't.

Its this kind of behavior that has caused a serious divide in the State GOP.
There is no way Diane Tebelius or Mr McMorris or Mike McGavick can ever unite it.
In fact there are only two individuals that I know can.Mark Hulst and Susan Hutchison. Do I think it will happen? In Susan's Case the state party doesn't
deserve her anymore. As for Mark Hulst only time will tell...

I'd love to hear more about how the process all works.

How are candidates chosen? What is involved in becoming a candidate? Can anyone just show up at these functions?

Is the process usually as messy as it sounds like in your blog?

Its good to hear from you. I hope
your family is doing well.How are
candidates chosen?Well its pretty
simple, Anyone that is a republican
can choose to run as they please.
The party leadership does have there
chosen favorites.

They do not however have the right
to decide who does and doesn't run. Yes anyone can come to these
events. Just be aware that the
state gop never posts these things
on there website.Thats because
there trying to control who shows
up.Fortunately I know enough
people who give me plenty of
advanced notice.

Is it messy? It doesn't have to
be. It shouldn't be but when you
have enlists running the party it
usually is.If we get Mark Hulst
to be the next chairman the that
will all come to an end

The King County Republicans are holding a re-organizing meeting Dec 2nd. This will be an early indication of the direction the party will be taking in the next few years.

Some are calling for the Republicans to move even further to the left but any sound analysis of what happened in November indicates that it was because Republicans had been moving to the left that so many Republicans didn't show up to vote this year.

If the Evanites, if the Mainstreamers, win Dec 2nd, I feel it means that we will lose in 2008. I am not saying that it will cause our defeat but it will be an indication of the influence either one side or the other already has and if the Left is stronger then we will lose for years to come.

Let us not forget that many said Ronald Reagan was too extreme a candidate, so much so that after losing in the Primary a liberal Republican named John Anderson decided to run third party. And then in 1994, we hardly ran from conservatism that year.

Republicans do very well when they are unabashedly conservative. They do less well and eventually lose when they either run away from conservatism or when they talk the talk but fail to walk the walk.
