JohnA: 2-Party System Again, Locally

JohnA : I look forward to the primary in May, because suddenly we have a two-party choice again, and no, Democrats aren't one of them. We have the two-party GOP on the local level, and it's time for moderate R's like me to seek out those who will defy the far righties and help them get into (or remain) in office. I see those elections next year as just as big a challenge as the school board and city elections were this year. Especially at the county level, where we've already seen the influence of a Central Committee torn apart.

Question: JohnA may have a good point. It's time for all of us to jump on the local GOP bandwagon and -- for those holding your noses at the idea -- ensure that the best option emerges from the spring GOPrimary. What do you think?
