  • 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.
