A primary was chosen......2 years in advance of the general election, the longest time in advance, ever, before the election, that this choice has been made.
Why? Bolling had the RINO votes on State Central to get his way....
Bolling no longer has the RINO majority on State Central and he suspected, correctly, that voters would choose more Conservative members of state central this year....which they did.
The more liberal Republican ALWAYS wants a primary because Democrats and independents can choose the REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE...not to mention a statewide primary sticks the Taxpayers with a $3,000,000 tab.
There is nothing CONSERVATIVE about a primary.
Please read the ensuing conversation - I have changed my position.
