  •  My grandfather was a NE Republican (2+ / 0-)

    My great uncle was the mayor of Worcester, MA and died of a heart attack while attending the 1936 Republican convention in Cleveland.

    My grandfather ALWAYS voted Republican in EVERY election up until 2004.  Schwarzennegar staging a coup in California, the War in Iraq, and the creeping influence of the religious right drove him out of the party.  He passed away in 2006.
