How is it that the chairman of the Brunswick Republican Committee is publicly supporting the Fred Horch, Green Independent candidate, over his own party’s candidate, Republican Grant Connors? While all if us have the right to support and vote for whomever we choose, how appropriate is it for an officer of the local party organization to retain his position while actively working against his own party’s objectives? As a Republican I am personally embarrassed by the fact my own party cannot even unite behind a local candidate. If we are not able to do that, how can we hope to unite the state or nation behind our goals and policies? If Mr. Crimmins is unable to support his own party’s candidate maybe it is time for him to pursue other interests.
