Fight for leadership of Harris County Republican Party

Jared Woodfill is a tea party idiot who has been the chairman of the county party for a while. Woodfill is being challenged for leadership of the Harris County GOP http://texpate.com/2014/01/10/the-harris-county-gop-chairman-race/

The Houston Chronicle reports that County Judge Ed Emmett has endorsed Paul Simpson in his race for chairman of the Harris County GOP, against incumbent Jared Woodfill. Emmett, a Republican, is the highest ranking member of the county party, holding the de facto executive leadership role over Harris County.

The news was broken last night on Quorum Report, where it was also reported that Emmett had donated a generous $10,000.00 to Simpson’s campaign. As the astute may recall, this is Simpson’s –a local attorney– third bid against the incumbent chair. However, unlike a previous race, this year’s election simply features the two candidates, making Woodfill somewhat more vulnerable. Emmett blasted Woodfill as being out of touch and implicit in the recent losing streak of the party. Ronald Reagan would probably not be welcome in today’s Republican Party. I would like to see the base in Harris County to be 400,000, not 150,000,” Emmett says.

Ed Emmett is well respected and this will be a fun race to watch. I have heard that the fight is getting nasty with tea party types backing Woodfill and the business types in the GOP backing Paul Simpson
