I want to thank you for running and reinvigorating the local Republican Party. I am sure some people are disappointed because they liked the man you defeated, but when the dust clears all of us that want to promote conservative values should be behind you.
Nothing personal but the core group of people who were in charge here locally were nothing like the chairman and the workers we had where I am from. Their interests were not always focused on actually helping Republican candidates win elections.
At one point I questioned whether or not our party leaders knew more than a few little things about running a campaign. I don’t mean to sound unappreciative because I am sure they worked hard and did what they knew to do. I know that it sounds strange for me to be critical of their leadership because a few candidates were starting to win for the first time in this county’s recent history. But the fact of the matter is that Republicans in this county really should have won more elections last time. Your Democrats around here have been like the Three Stooges the last four or five years.
I knew if you knew more about campaigns than them you would win. This chairman had high name identification because of his years of service in the most populated area in the county, his run for county judge, and his two terms as county chairman. But with all of those advantages he and his team didn’t seem to know much about politics and you beat him. You know what you are doing.
When you talked about why you were a Republican and what these elections are about, you were easy for me to promote with all of my friends, I am sure they join me in congratulating you and looking forward to even greater success for the Republican Party here in Liberty County.
A Devoted Conservative
