Stacking the Delegate Deck
We have recently been alerted to another blog that is dedicated to the Republican Party’s politics of the 11th district of Michigan. It is appropriately named, The Elephant in the Room.
The editor, Denis Curran, informs us about the Michigan Republican Party State Committee’s decision to modify the “Hardworking Delegate Rule” raising it from two per congressional district to a whopping ten percent of of the allocated state delegates.
It makes you wonder why wouldn’t they just raise the amount of state delegates instead of drawing out the county convention process of nominating these “hard working strawmen”?
Maybe because the establishment herd feels they are entitled to positions of power. Maybe because it is growing more difficult to find delegates that will support elitist candidates, such as David Trott and Bobby Schostak.
It will be just another long list of people nominated that have never been to a county convention, let alone a state convention. This rule change is only meant to attempt to dilute the conservative voice… again.
OCRP Elections Be Damned
The blog also discusses changes made to the Oakland County Republican Party’s by-laws. It appears the Oakland County ruling class wants as little to do with electing party leaders as possible as they make a move for the vice chair to be appointed by the Chairman rather than elected.
One thing for sure, David Trott’s herd of cronies will continue to serve their master. I suppose it would prove difficult to bite the hand that feeds you and puts a roof over your head (or for the rest of us, takes our roof away). After all, the OCRP dwelling is owned by the one and only Foreclosure King.
