HawkeyeGOP: RPI chair forum
Excerpted from this post at HawkeyeGOP
... I would estimate 150 in attendance. Conspicuous in the room were the large number of Danny Carroll supporters wearing white t-shirts with DANNY written across the front. ... There were 12 voting SCC members present along with party co-chair Leon Mosely. Stryker over at Flyover Country is critical of those members who were absent. I would remind my readers that the meeting was called with only a few days notice during a busy vacation travel season. ... Two candidates stick out for their absence: First, Polk County GOP Chairman Ted Sporer. ... Ted was the first to publish a plan for what he would do if elected chair. He probably set the bar for the other candidates who have now all published their own plans. Ted was the first. More recently G$ over at Questions Comments and Insults broke the news of Sporer joining Gopal as co-chair on a combined ticket. Ted has been absent from his blog for a while and is apparently absent from the chairman's race as well. Second, Gopal. The top of the Krishna/Sporer ticket was also absent from the forum. ... At this point, the Krishna/Sporer ticket is a non-starter -- you heard it here first. ... As I talked to SCC members and guests, there seemed to be a lot of support for both Matt Strawn and Danny Carroll.
