Local Republican Party Gathers for Super Tuesday

Super Tuesday brought the Leon County Republicans together to watch the results as polls closed around the nation. The local party members were very optimistic, but also very anxious. Many of them believed it would be a deciding night. At Andrew's Bar and Grill downtown, there was about twenty from the party. We asked a few what their thoughts were on the Super Tuesday primary.

Dan Abel, Chairman with the Leon County Republican Party said, "I think tonight could be the last day. We could have a nominee after tonight. I mean, most of the country is voting tonight, so it's very possible this is it."

Barbara Brown, a memeber with the party said, "I'm feeling really bad that Huckabee hasn't bowed out because I don't think he has a chance and I think he's taking a lot of votes from Romney."

Although some the Leon County Republican Party members have their favorites, many are confident that whoever wins the candidacy will beat the democrats in November.

    I totally disagree with Barbara Brown! Romney needs to be the one to bow out. A lot of people in my area are registered democrats that wanted to vote for Huckabee but could not. I think we need to do like they do in Tennessee, when they go to vote they are asked which ballot they would like democrat or republican. It does not matter what the party they get to vote for whom they choose.

    Good move America. Vote for McCain all you want. You like 100 yr wars? You want to support the future bombing of Iran? Because our administration already has plans to do that. We dont need any more debt. Censoring Ron Paul's message to the general public is FRAUD. They act like Ron doesnt even exist! How pathetic. Save yourself if McCain becomes president.
