McDonald expected to win re-election with ease.
Michael J. McDonald has the needed support to win his re-election bid but the party will go through the formality of holding a vote.
For the most part the Nevada State Central Committee members, who will be voting, are tired of continuous change that leaves the Republican Party depleted, unorganized and ineffective and few are in the mood to jump ship.
“We have a Chairman that has focused on unity and respects the different factions within the party and that is exactly what we need to have, a strong party” said Jeri Taylor Swade, Co- publisher of TRUNC News Paper (Tea Party & Republicans Uniting Nevada Conservatives)
“Look, McDonald has done the best job bridging the different groups to work together than anyone I know, we cannot and will not win elections with a leader that panders to only one group” said Jerry Littman, spokesperson of Vote Your Values.
As recently as a week ago in a surprise effort by the establishment, Robert Uithoven announced he was considering mounting a challenge for the GOP Chairman position, a move that seems futile with a majority of committee members. Uithoven is best known for his reckless handling and failed attempt as a campaign manager for Sue Lowden in 2012. Uithoven also carries the unpleasant stigma of being an establishment mouth piece, and the dreaded title “consultant”
“Mike has been able to raise funds for the work of the Republican Party by building bridges, something that has been neglected in the past. It is important to have funding but we need more than that, we need the strength of all Republicans to win elections and that’s what Mike brings to the table and he has done it from the ground up” said Jesse Law, GOP Political Director.
The election will take place on September 28, 2013 at the South Point Hotel and Casino.
