GOP insider:“Essentially we’re setting up a shadow state party.”

Fed up with an inept and self-destructive GOP apparatus in Nevada, the Republican National Committee and the Mitt Romney campaign have decided to erect a “shadow state party” in this critical swing state, sources confirmed today.

“They are still bogged down in the minutiae of whether Romney will be the presumptive nominee,” scoffed a GOP strategist familiar with the details of the restructuring. “We don’t have time for that when the Obama campaign already is in full campaign mode. We have no use for them (the state GOP).”

That seems somehow illegal

What is there recourse to crush this action? The Nevada GOP should call them out and denounce this immediately.

Isn't it interesting. In times of great economic strain, all of the niceties can quickly disappear and the institutions and social structures that folks have always thought of as permanent and unchanging can quickly dissolve into bickering and recriminations.

I don't get it. Who's the shadow? Who's talking about whom? Who's scoffing? Whose side is who on? Very confusing article.

The Romney Whig

Since the newly elected Paul Platform for 2012-2014 got elected at the State Convention and the old GOP folks who were expecting their "earned positions" didn't get elected they formed a new club for themselves.
Mitt has a history of "getting things done" at any cost, are you surprised? The newly elected Paul peeps are not raising the "GOP" $$ like they need and are not hot about Romney. The state is truly at a political crossroads. The many who left back to california to find work were most likely Blue voters leaving the older more conservative retirees who depend on Government to fund their retirements. the demographics are changing in NV, there is a chance to get it "Red" again. RINO Red in name only is the problem.

An idea is great, it needs solid execution.

Solutions anyone.. Looks like the gains for the Liberty Movement in NV have simply been flanked.

GOP don't like that we're cleaning up their garbage

So they're trying to hide their garbage and call it something else. We came in to clean it up, but they want to keep it. We'll find the garbage and throw it out. They can't hide it.

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!
