“I am really so tired of all the TALKERS who do nothing but complain about RINOs but don’t show up at the primaries. Primaries everywhere have dismal turnouts. They are the PRIMARY place to defeat RINOs.”
I agree with this sentiment. Two years ago, here in Texas, in an OPEN seat fight Ted Cruz won because
1. Low primary turnout
2. even lower runoff turnout.
So just how many people care anything about our g’ment? And just how many do we really need to show up on primary day?
For seats where there is an incumbent running there are many obstacles.
Here in Texas John Wayne McCornyn had abysmal opposition. NO ONE with any credibility chose to run against him
Was this also the case in Kentucky? More primary voters had a vested interest in Mitch? Was Bevin as good candidate?
Great points Dan. My group has won more elections and petitions than any group in Oregon. We live in a blue state and a blue district yet we win election after election.
We have one secret, we get out our Republican voters. We don’t lose from not getting enough crossover votes, we lose by not getting enough Republican votes. Our team has realized that and are solving that problem.
We just got another ballot measure to stop Light Rail in my town and will have a vote in Sept to completely stop it. We did it by getting enough Republicans to sign the measure. This system can win any election.
