Fresh New Montco Republican Party Looms — Stan Cascio has let us know that 100 persons of varying political identities attended a soiree at his home to create a fresh new Republican Party of Montgomery County.
He says there were Tea Party conservatives, establishmentarians, two independents and one Democrat, whom he declined to name.
Among those in attendance were official GOP county head LIz Preate Harvey; the wonderful and influential Dom Giordano of WPHT; and county commissioner candidate Sean Gale, the brother of county commissioner and running mate Joe Gale .
Stan says everyone in the room agreed on 80 percent of things.
Stan says like-minded people — those who love freedom, hate corruption and lies, and recognize that rights are God-given — must unite else the neo-feudalists i.e. the New Democrat Socialist Party that holds that some animals are more equal than others will prevail.
Stan, who is running for county controller, said the county GOP has agreed to refrain from making endorsements this primary election.
Stan expressed disappointment about ads being run by the Gale brothers attacking the establishment.
“We must stop forming circular firing squads,” he said.
Stan had a great observation about border security and immigration vs illegal immigration.
“What if one one of the Democrats waiting to see Hamilton in Puerto Rico had someone butt in front of them in line?” he asked. “What would they do about it?”
Of course, we know the answer. Rules for thee but not for me.
Rebecca Warren Choice Of Southwest Caucus — Lois Kaneshiki informs us that our gal Rebecca Warren is the pick of the Republican Party Southwest Caucus as to who the party should endorse for Superior Court this primary.
The tally was Ms. Warren, 49, Christylee Peck 44 and Montco-connected Kate Harper 9.
On Jan. 9, the Southeast Caucus tally was Kate. Harper. 79; Chistylee Peck. 49; and Rebecca Warren, 13.
Superior Court Endorsement Pondered By Southeastern GOP Caucus— A straw poll is scheduled for tomorrow (Jan. 9) by the Southeastern Pennsylvania Republican Caucus to pick who to endorse for this fall’s Superior Court race.
The choices are Former Montour County District Attorney Rebecca Warren; Cumberland County Common Pleas Court Judge Christylee Peck; and Kate Harper, who represented the 61st Legislative District in the State House for 18 years, until her defeat last fall by Liz Hanbidge.
We’d just like to point out that Ms. Harper is strongly connected to the special-interest beholden Montgomery County uniparty establishment and had been targeted for removal last year by Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania.
So were Tom McGarrigle and Alex Charlton for that matter.
