Politics and Humor…but I repeat myself

Michigan’s Republican Party ends internal battle…08′ positioning also thrown in the mix

From the folks over at Michigan Cooler:

“The very loud and raucous race for state party chairman ended surprisingly quietly this weekend with Attorney General Mike Cox endorsing Saul Anuzis, Dave Dishaw dropping from the race, and Anuzis issuing a letter that asked legislative leaders to quickly pass a law setting up an Open Primary.”

Apparently the McCain people in Michigan saw Saul’s previous support for a Closed Primary or Caucus System as a threat to McCain’s appeal to independent voters. 

Here is an article from Hotline on the matter; they are calling it a Win/Win for both sides. 

No matter how you look at it, one thing is surely clear, the race for 08′ is already in full force.
