No Bragging Rights for Clark County Republicans, Must be Restructured

by lewwaters

UPDATE: The Clark County Republican Party did elect a new chair, someone not to the liking of the previous leadership that now sees their power slipping away and in usual fashion, engage in vitriolic attacks, smears and pure hatred of a view different than their own.

The result? Infighting roils local Republican Party

Welcome to the club, Mr. Gellatly

Before the Clark County Republican Party begins crowing on how successful they were in local elections, I’d like to remind all of you that many of the Republicans winning their election were either not endorsed, not supported and at least one outright opposed by the Clark County Republicans.

Party officials voted not only not to endorse Republican John Blom, who along with Democrat Tanisha Harris, handily defeated County Councilor David Madore in the primary for County Council, District 3, but to actually oppose his campaign against Harris. He won.

In a November 9th notice sent to the Everett Herald Wilbur said,

“We did make some gains last Tuesday, but not as many as we should have, given that the voters rejected the income tax and candy tax so overwhelmingly and reinstated 960 as well by a large margin. I have gotten a lot of support and encouragement from within the party and have a vision for the state party and I think the skills and talent to bring it about.” 

A careful review of the general election results this year and comparison to other regions shows that the Republican Party is due for a major shake-up in Washington State and also at several county level parties’.
