Across The Great State GOP Divide
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...
