Hey Tomato. I am in Michigan and we had some problems with our county chair here and I am running a campaign to displace him later next month. What state are you in? Is there a video of what happened at your gathering? I am meeting with some of the heavy hitters in my county next week who are past chairmen and heavy contributors. I am bringing a message to them of inclusiveness to not exclude conservative views and opening up beyond the core party view. We have been stagnant in fund raising for the last 6 years.
We need fresh blood and need to involve people beyond the exec committee who just keeps things to themselves. I am bringing a message for elected officials to have themselves or their helpers to be at every meeting without exception. We have been lazy as a party IMHO and I am very interested in feedback from what happened at your county convention.
Connecticut has some good news. At least three RTC chairs have gone tea party. More are in the works. Don’t want to talk about the rest, but things are methodically changing for the better here. Tangible results will still take time, but work has begun in this most difficult of blue states.
Hey MB, I’m in FL., and no video. my advice to you is to look at your Republican State party Constitution. learn it and see if your county has adopted it, and are they following it! Second, do you have a local Tea Party organization. Many of the Tea party are dissatisfied voters ( Democrat, republican, and independent)who might be interested in âre-brandingâ the existing Republican party. I don’t see the need to reinvent the wheel, just get it back on the track with a new engine. In my county, we were surprised that many precincts had no captains, people who could vote on their leadership. Fill those positions and your on your way. Share these results with other counties and you will take bake the leadership of the party in your state!
