WA State PCO Drive - a big change in attitude

We are in the midst of a PCO drive prior to our August Primary. I went out hitting the streets in my neighborhood. It was a fantastic response. Many people were home. Ninety percent of the folks I talked to were not only aware of Ron Paul but supported him. What a big change from December and January when I was hitting the streets in my precinct for the caucus. The big challenge is letting the voters know who the Ron Paul PCO candidates are. Democrats and Independents said they would vote for me. It was very uplifting.

Good work you're doing.

I am a PCO from Washington State (Seattle area).

I went from not voting for 34 years (until 2008), to working my way all the way up to being a delegate at the Washington State Republican convention.

We (Ron Paul delegates) were outnumbered by only 100 to 200 Romney delegates.

But it was enough to lose badly. We only got 5 delegates for Dr. Paul out of 43 delegate positions.

I think something happened to the Spokane Paul-supporters. They didn't show I heard and that killed us.

What a shame.

We should have nearly SWEPT Washington State for Ron Paul.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

Bigger turnout than 2008 at precinct level caucuses

by supporters of all candidates got us over here. We fought hard but were ultimately crushed as we did not have the numbers at the county level. Santorum dropping out the week of our county convention did not help our cause and was rather a death-blow to us in Spokane as those Santorum people likely saw nothing in it for them and therefore left us high and dry against the Romney-ites at the county level. Was a difficult loss considering our overwhelming sweep back in '08. All the talk about RP having Washington made me hope you guys over there knew something we didn't know over here. :/

What are you fightin' for?
Caught in the middle?

What is a PCO?



A Precinct Committee Officer, or PCO, is the name for an office in the U.S. state of Washington that organizes a voting precinct for a political party. The PCO is one of the most grass-roots offices available. The PCO brings to the party organizations the concerns of the voters, and of the neighborhood. Conversely, the PCO provides a link between the voter and the legislative district and county organizations, disseminating information and providing assistance where needed to the voters of the precinct. In other states, this position is often called Precinct Captain.

Go Washington!!

In my state (AZ) it is...

...called Precinct Committeeman (person) and I am now one. Collected a whole dozen (I think I needed ten) signatures in my neighborhood and, due to apathy, am not opposed (won't be on Primary ballot) and will now be a VOTING member at our district conventions. Time to sweep out the old-guard and replace them with liberty-minded citizens :-)


Thank you for

being and ACTIVE citizen and patriot. Maybe they would be willing to put Ron Paul signs in their yard? The more the merrier.

Yeah, One Elderly Lady

was asking me for a sign. It kind of suprised me.
