Former GOP chair says party will be unified come fall

Posted by David Postman

Yu Nakayama just ran into Chris Vance, former chairman of the state Republican Party. Vance, a McCain backer, was elected a precinct delegate from Kent. Vance told him:

"There's a lot of enthusiasm; people are excited about the fall. That's the thing: People like to be a part of the process. They've seen it happen in other states, and they love being in it for real in their state."
Vance also added that he was extremely confident, despite the significant number of voters who appeared to be uncommitted, that McCain would be the Republican candidate.
"The people here are the most committed, most conservative, most passionate, grass-roots activists. m absolutely certain that John McCain's going to be the Republican nominee. And I'm absolutely certain that these people will work hard for John McCain. "Today, a lot of them are reluctant to get fully on-board. But it's February. By the time Fall comes around, I have no doubt that all these people will be ringing doorbells, putting up signs, standing on street corners, campaigning for John McCain, Dino Rossi and Rob McKenna."
