Yesterday's 'Arizona Republic' had an interesting article concerning the upcoming race for State Republican Chairman. The article talks about the fact that if Randy Pullen is elected as the Chairman, donations to the party will dry up. Pullen, twice a loser for Mayor of Phoenix, says in the article that "I don't believe that for an instant, quite frankly," he said. "The donors will give money to the party. They always have, and they always will."
Lisa James, the other candidate for Chairman, disagrees. "The chairman has to work hard to raise money," she said. "The money doesn't just come in." (The money people I have spoken to say they won't donate if Pullen is chair.)
James, a 100% Pro-Life Conservative candidate brings a fresh approach to this campaign. She actually has a plan that builds the party 'from the Precinct up'.
Pullen, who's wife Katherine, gave $1.025.00 to the WISH LIST, a pro-abortion group formed back in 1992 (so much for Rob Haney's Litmus Test?)
asked Lisa James if she would become the next Executive Director of the Republican Party, she declined. Word on the street says that since James turned him down, Pullen will choose ethically challenged Phil 'Push Poll' Mason as the next ED. The controversial Mason, a long-time fixture in Arizona politics, would further divide the Republican Party. Let's hope that rumor is not true.
The thing that really separates these two candidates is the fact that President George W. Bush TWICE chose Lisa James to run his Arizona campaigns. That is all I need as I completely trust President Bush and Lisa James.
