TOM MCCUIN: Another Shootout in a Lifeboat

ICYMI: Another Shootout in a Lifeboat by Tom McCuin
(A note on Facebook)

Tom McGuin

An open letter to Gov. Charlie Baker, and Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito, and the entire Massachusetts Republican Party:
Toute nation a le gouvernement qu’elle mérite.
Likewise, every political party gets the leadership it deserves. I haven’t publicly discussed most of what I now discuss here, but given recent developments, I must speak up.
At the turn of the century, when people were running from the party structure like it carried the plague, its finances were in ruin, and its staff banished to Wakefield, I begged for a job on the staff. I had spent the previous year helping John McCain win in New Hampshire, trying (spectacularly unsuccessfully) to make Jack Robinson a better candidate, and rescuing the reelection campaign of Bob Hargraves. I wanted to help make the MassGOP healthy again.
Why do I tell you this now? Because I cannot sit quietly while the party structure engages in another circular firing squad and seeks to push out the one person who nearly every successful Republican candidate in Massachusetts for the last 15 years owes a debt of gratitude.
The State Committee will soon choose the man and woman to represent the state on the Republican National Committee. Ron Kaufman will deservedly return for another term. But there is a movement, which I’m told comes from the top, to replace Chanel. I can’t sit still for that.
