Re: “U.S. Senate Candidate Chris Rey Has a Stellar Résumé. Why Isn’t Anyone Taking Him Seriously?

I've wondered why a great guy like Chris, with NO legislative experience (small town Mayor's don't legislate) would seek the toughest most partisan political seat there is, without taking a first step opportunity (ie Lt. Governor, etc..) that would introduce him to the voters on a statewide basis.
I can't think of any sound reason for him to of done so, other than someone poorly advising him.
I hope it doesn't undermine his future in the political spectrum, but as a first public decision this would be a very poor one, it would definitely draw an F.

Re: “Party chairman Randy Voller's latest ruckus should be his last

The author cites three reasons in the opening article and I'm addressing reason #1 as being purely speculative from the writer and not substantiated anywhere in the ensuing paragraphs.
Due to legalities the reasons behind personnel terminations will never and should never become publicly known, but that does not diminish the right of the chair to make such a move.
Your second and third points have sound basis, but does not justify the assumption of the first.
Consecutive losses at the polls have demonstrated the lack of connection between party activists and actual voters. Their reach circling into an ever smaller choir while alienating vast amounts of the democratic base. This is not Chairman Voller's fault nor the mishandling of Mr. Dempsey and Dr. Chavis, but is a direct result of the critics of the chair and their individual activities. Immature sympathy resignations are a prime example of such behavior, and point to an individual agenda being more predominant than overall success.
