NC GOP Convention Chairman Elections

After nomination speeches and candidate remarks, the convention is finally down to the most anticipated business of the day.  Delegates are now voting for their choice of either Jack Brosch (Mecklenburg) or Claude Pope (Brunswick and formerly of Wake).

I don’t have a vote this year, as I didn’t go to my precinct, county, or even my district conventions.  Therefore, I’m here as press and as a guest.

Claude Pope

Personally, I would have voted for Claude Pope as he was chairman of the Wake County Republican Party and did a fantastic job.  He had fantastic leadership skills and made sure everyone had a voice.  He now lives on Bald Head Island with his family, and owns and runs a grocery store there.

I have never met Jack Brosch, unfortunately.  The first time I saw him was today.   Mostly the former Libertarians/Ron Paul faction of our party seems to be supporting him while the Reagan, traditional conservatives seem to support Pope.

Unfortunately, I cannot remember the name of the man who nominated Mr. Brosch, as I found his remarks offensive.  Though he did not name him specifically, the man lambasted current chairman Robin Hayes and his staff.

The vote is now underway.

    Ron Paul was the ONLY Congresman to endorse Reagan in 76. You can’t say that Ron Paul Republicans are different than Reagan Republicans. Ron Paul Republicans are far more conservative than the typical neo-cons running the GOP today.
