Maybe Bob Parker will get his shot now.

Mowrangler, As far as grass roots local support, Bob stands out as a good choice in my opinion, but the ruling powers have more influence than the local grass roots people.

I predict an ugly campaign if the Dems feel threatened in what they consider their rightful turn.

SRG, So you think the local GOP is the establishment?

SRG, Did you read Mobushwacker's link or check out any of the articles in the paper?

Sounds to me there is a good mix of genuine grass roots independent from the top, and endorsement of establishment same o same o.

Seems to me the best alternative to all out beligerance is change from the local/bottem up and whether it is 31 or several thousand, it's a good start.
