GAGOP Chairman and 1st Vice-Chairman Debate Recap (Part 2)

And here’s part two…the GAGOP chairman’s debate.  It’s a long one.   -NAS

After a 5 minute break, the candidates for GAGOP state chairman took the stage: Sue Everhart, Shawn Hanley, and Tricia Pridemore.  The format followed along the same line of questioning as the 1st Vice-Chairman debate.  The first question was about the importance of grassroots.  Again, all of the candidates agreed on the importance of grassroots in the party.  Tricia pointed to her 4 point plan to grow the grassroots of the Georgia Republican Party, that the GOP needs to be organized from the bottom up, and that the grassroots need to be listened to and included.  She also said that the GOP couldn’t have done it alone this past November and that the GOP had a lot of help from the Tea Party, the 9/12 project, and other conservative groups.  Shawn pointed to his “6-in-60” plan and said that the technology component of his platform makes him more distinct from his opponents and said that the Fulton County GOP has been leading the way in campaign technology through the use of BlackBerry and Droid apps and integrating technology for phone banking and door-to-door campaigning before the state party did.  Sue said that the GAGOP is already ran by the grassroots and is inclusive and pointed to how she began in the women’s club and worked her way up through the ranks.  She also said that the GAGOP needs to continue building a base of grassroots that reaches out to others, but it also needs to be fun.  She used a recent young professional’s event where the party got 175 new email addresses.  She said that the grassroots were not appreciated before she was chairman.
