The local GOP worked their butts off in this General Election. They fielded a slate of articulate candidates that ran credible races. The fundraising efforts were creative and engendered a lot of excitement. (Rick Arnold and James O'Meara assured people that their pizza parties were low calorie. Okay, I'll buy that!) What the local GOP need to continue to do is recruit candidates but also change registrations. With Home Rule passing and a new government coming into being, the Democrats will no longer have the franchise anymore. Plus the chair of the Home Rule Commission, Jim Haggerty has an office festooned with pictures of Ronald Reagan. Despite what the current Pronthonotary says, Home Rule can be very good for the future of the local GOP. Enjoy the victory lap guys and get ready for 2011 when there will be more than 5 Judicial races on the ballot.
