Tag: 2 for 13 on Election Day
The campaign to either retain or replace Robert I. Schostak as the Michigan Republican Party Chairman has been going on for just over eleven weeks now, with just under three weeks to go. Up until yesterday, it's been pretty clean in public forums (with the one notable and easily rebuked exception), although I wouldn't put it past the elites to develop new tactics. Apparently, the thread-jackers and smear-trolls do seem to be ramping it up now (at least with regard to the Youth Vice-Chair race), and given the fact that at least three seats are going to be contested at the state convention (four if you ignore the fact that the Chair and Co-Chair run as a single ticket), I expect the knives will be coming out in earnest soon enough. So I'd like to take advantage of an as-yet uncluttered opportunity to do a little bit of comparing-and-contrasting of the two candidates for the top spot at the state party.
I was originally going to do this as a single article, but there's just so much material here that I'm going to do this as a series (that may actually be more than two parts in length).
