The tortuous escapade preceding the Arizona Republican Statutory Meeting this Saturday has been full of intrigue and disappointments. First came the news that state chairman Randy Pullen would be unable to run for reelection due to an orchestrated coup in LD11, Pullen‘s home legislative district. Next, conservatives breathed a sigh of relief after being told that Arizona’s National Committeeman Bruce Ash, was stepping up to take the reins from his friend Pullen. His conservative credentials were said to be intact.
Following that all too brief respite, Ash suddenly dropped out of the race, citing health issues. Fortunately, Tom Morrissey, a well-known former district chairman with recommendations galore offered to step up to take on this hefty job.
The establishment was none too happy with this turn of events, since they had all lined up behind one of their hand-picked minions, eager to fall in line with the elected clique lead by McCain and Kyl surrogates.
This post about Tom Morrissey earlier today has generated a host of comments.
However, we invite your attention to this recent article in the Arizona Republic on Morrissey’s charitable endeavors, which tell an even more complete story about the good man seeking this office.
