'King' Vance stifles Republican debate
June 13, 2008 · Updated 4:38 PM
Apparently, would-be king Chris Vance and his state Republican Party Executive Board no longer believe in the elective process and somehow feel the delegates and guests attending the King County Convention do not have the wherewithal to decide whod be the best candidate to represent them in the senatorial race against Patty Murray in the fall.
Therefore Vance and his board, feel that Reed Davis, who is a viable, well-qualified and articulate candidate, should not be allowed to speak at the convention.
I dont believe anyone, even supporters of candidate George Nethercutt, would object to spending a few minutes listening to another candidate explaining what he stands for and what he believes in.
Is it perhaps because it may become apparent that Nethercutt is not being that informative on what he stands for and what he believes in?
Or would this statement not be allowed by the 11th Commandment?
I believe the whole concept of the elective process is for voters to listen to all viewpoints and then decide which candidate would best represent them.
