Last night, Dallas Woodhouse was elected as the next Executive Director of the NC GOP.
But Woodhouse said accepting the position is ‘tentative’.
“Woodhouse cautioned by text message that he has not received nor accepted a formal offer.” – NCSpin
But wait there’s more. All the ‘right’ people gave their support.
While the hiring process has been an ordeal, with candidates scared off over concerns about the N.C. GOP’s financial state and adjustments to new chairman Hasan Harnett, the heavy lift is still ahead for Woodhouse. He takes the reins of the state party in a year that will see the re-election campaigns of Gov. Pat McCrory, Sen. Richard Burr, and a Republican majority in the General Assembly.
According to those close to the search process, Woodhouse had the support of McCrory, state House Speaker Tim Moore and Senate leader Phil Berger for the job. Woodhouse’s comments to the Central Committee yesterday and his decades of work building grassroots energy around Republican candidates made him a clear choice. – Jones & Blount
Hey, don’t forget Thom Tillis. He’s important in that line-up.
Start the clock. Let’s see how long the new chairman, Hassan Harnett lasts.
I can hear the readers asking, ‘What are you talking about, Lady Liberty?’.
I’m talking about the word on the street is that the establishment GOP wants to push out Harnett.
I’ve been watching. The lack of support by the establishment types in the NC GOP for Harnett is not a secret and I’m here to say I find it disgusting.
Newsflash NC GOPe: Your guy lost. The grassroots guy won. GET OVER IT.
Seems to me that maybe the primary date changes in HB 373 were aimed not just at controlling national races, but controlling the money for in-state party based agendas.
I’ve asked for comment both the NC GOP on Twitter and through back channels on this ‘rumor’.
What I got back was silence on Twitter and back channels ignoring the question or they won’t ‘comment on rumors’. If there was nothing to this ‘rumor’, that should have been easy to clear up with a denial. Instead, silence and ‘no comment’. Do the math.
