Why does Romney support Peter Torkildson for Mass. GOP chair? Jim Antle will have a more detailed answer, but I’d bet it’s plain old party building — in a state with almost no Republican party left to build from. Torkildson and Peter Blute were the last two elected Republican representatives from Massachusetts. My favorite local Republican says if you could combine Torkildson’s brains and Blute’s likeability you’d have an ideal candidate.
Anyway, my take is, the Republicans just can’t afford a fight. They need bodies. And it’s been a while, it seems to me, since a Republican even vaguely identifiable was willing to be party chair.
Over to you, Jim.
