Strawn and Carroll in a tight race. I think at the end of the day we are going to end up with both of these men serving in official roles in our Party. Pate’s entrance into the Co-Chair race is an interesting move as he is the only announced candidate for the position. SCC members have assumed that the Co-Chair would materialize out of the Chair candidates. So where’s Leon? Word on the street is that the committee has made it known that he doesn’t have the votes to get re-elected. While Leon remains popular with many activists, his endorsement and campaigning for Steve Rathje in the last election cycle rubbed some people the wrong way.
No matter what happens on Saturday, I will stick to my pledge in supporting our new chair. My friends in Flyover Country have some great ideas for the next chairman. I have some ideas of my own which I will share with you tomorrow. Give their post a read, its first class.
The Dark Horse: Linda Harrington?
I agree with those who find humor in the latest entry to the chair race. Not really what I had in mind for my dark horse. While that candidate never emerged, the recent development of Gopal not running and Paul Pate offering his services as Co-Chair not Chair proves the volatility of races like these.
Out of Nowhere QCI endorses Strawn
Grant’s endorsement is well done, and a good read. I guess one could say instead of an endorsement, I went the other direction with Gopal…
