    Question: why purists in ” “? That implies either that the term is inaccurate, or that we, to whom you apply it, disavow it , or find it objectionnable.

    I, for one, do not. Of course, in the true spirit of the term, let each speak for himself.

    I’ve been a little confused by the Sue Jeffers campaign. While the quest for the GOP will get her a fair share of one sentance blurbs in the press it’s a complete waste of time. if she was seriuse about the GOP endorsement she would have sent people to GOP caucuses and at the very least forced them to conduct a true straw poll.

    I’ll give her credit on this as she might actually be doing something with this, but so far she hasn’t taken advantage of any oppurunities to promote herself as a seriuse candidate who intends to win this race.

    Seeking the GOP endorsement over a sitting governor, requires action on her part.
