I was just saying that, Republican or not, that fellow is a moron. BVS's thread title is "A Step Back for Republicans?" so I was just riffing off of that. No slam against Republicans.

The title certainly stirs the partisian waters.

Interesting how some incumbants are so far beyond scrutiny that it takes a nutcase to bring attention to the race.

If you notice the title was a question. I asked the question, haven't really quite got it answered yet, does this person have to have any consent to run as a Republican? If so then I think the title is true, if not he's just a quack.

No. The article indicates that the GOP decided not to run a candidate in the district.




And questions can have the same impact as a statement.

So does anyone know how it works? What keeps someone from running on a ticket without really holding their policies? What if you ran in an area where the Republican ticket won the majority of the time and you knew many would just vote blindly(as many do with local and state offices) but really held beliefs that were liberal? And vice versa... This way assuring yourself a seat so to make your policies. Is there nothing there stopping anyone from doing this?

It is confusing. To what extent does a political party "own" the slot for an election?

When one party always wins a seat, there is usually more competition to run for that seat in the primaries. In the OC, Republicans usually win the seats, so the primaries are competative (cause you know if you win the primary, you win the election).
