NorCo GOP Exec Committee Unanimously Endorses Angle
He's running for State Committee, which has opened him up to the usual insults and name-calling. Last night, Northampton County's Executive Committee met to decide who they were endorsing. Each candidate, and there are a lot of them, was given a three-minute spiel. When all was said and done, only one candidate was endorsed unanimously. That candidate is none other than Ron Angle. He's a bastard, but he's their bastard.
The Executive Committee also voted to endorse Lee Snover, Peg Ferraro, Mary Barket, Glenn Geissinger and Bob Kilbanks.
“We just won the Republican Super Bowl in Northampton County," exclaimed an ecstatic Lee Snover. "Why would you change the coach and the team?” she asked, referring to the party's clean sweep in the Executive and County Council races.
I'm a Democrat, so what I think means little. But I don't know how Brian Monahan was overlooked. For years, he's been an invaluable asset to County Republicans, both inside and outside the courtroom. Last Fall, he was one of the persons who stood up to the tea party faction. In addition, he has been among their top vote getters. The people who voted showed little gratitude to a person who himself has always been loyal.
