After receiving a threatening letter from Christian Berrigan, State Committeeman for the Clark County Washington Republican Party, of withholding support in any reelection bid if he attended the Republicans of Clark County event, Rep. Paul Harris (17th) responded while attending the ROCC Ronald Reagan Birthday Celebration Dinner on February 6, 2016 in Vancouver, Washington at the Heathman Lodge.
I can’t think it is anything but downright silly to try to bully candidates to not campaign before certain groups of people because you might not like that group. After all, that is what political candidates do.
They want no part of squabbles and are known to speak before any supportive group in order to gain votes.
It has been said politics is a blood sport, but to attack or oppose candidates solely due to who they speak before is political suicide in my estimation.
The new Clark County Republican Party establishment currently ruling the party must realize their bullying of others does not attract voters. It drives them away!
It must also be noted that Paul Harris, even though kidding around above, is also hopeful of differences being set aside and working together, not kow towing as currently demanded from the Party.
DISCLAIMER: This is not posted in support of or endorsement of any candidate or political group or party. It is my general observation.
