After an abrupt ending to the State Central Committee meeting on Saturday, the 16th, committee chairman Rich Anderson has called for a third meeting this Saturday, the 23rd, to discuss whether the Republican party will have a convention or a primary this year to choose our statewide candidates.
In December the SCC voted twice for a convention rather than a primary. And yet it was again on the agenda for a vote last week. And now the official call for this week’s SCC meeting includes yet another vote for a convention over a primary. How many votes do they need?
Who is running this show? Will there be endless meetings to revote on something that was decided in December? Will the establishment Republicans never stop pushing for a primary? Will Rich Anderson continue indefinitely to allow them to put a primary back on the agenda at every State Central Committee meeting? Who is controlling the agenda at these meetings? It should now be obvious to all, it’s not the Chairman. Or if it is the chair, he’s got a heavy thumb on the scale for a primary, despite his protestations otherwise.
