DP'ers who stuck with the GOP to carry on RP's vision of transforming the party from within...Submitted by brigitfey on Thu, 02/20/2014 - 02:04
I'm interested to hear what you've been doing! I just attended my local GOP meeting. Our caucus here in CO is next month and there was also talk of candidates for local positions.
I totally respect those who ran away from the party in disgust after 2012. Perhaps I am fortunate to live in a rural county where Republicans are largely farmers & ranchers and the party is a minority. They were happy to have me even after I blew my cover and they knew I was a RP supporter. I come from the kooky side of our vast valley so they appreciate my input since most of the voting base of the county is in my area.
I'm contemplating running as a delegate to State Assembly again. Once I express the interest, I think my chances are solid. It sure won't be as exciting as 2012 but there's a lot more work to be done! CO may be great for the legalization thing but we still face many daunting issues as I'm sure most of, if not all other states do.
Anyone else want to share their experiences? Peace
Update: My County Assembly is this Sat. and my county chair will be pushing for me to be elected as a delegate to State Convention. If elected, I will have the opportunity to support 2 Liberty candidates in CO CD3...David Cox (former RP delegate) & Senator Owen Hill (RP endorsed). Very low turn out at my caucus but we reminded ourselves that this is where it all begins! Again, I respect those who chose to opt out of the Republican BS but it sure can't hurt to have some of us liberty-minded folks in the fold. Hope to see some of you DPers in Boulder at the State Convention!
