  •  not Rossi, Vance (none)
    In the middle of all this stuff, Chris Vance let it be known that he wants another term as chair of the Washington Republican party.  Seeing what a scheming, partisan, slimy ass he is, it came as quite a shock to learn that he might face opposition for the post.  

    I was especially surprised to see why the potential competitors might try to supplant Vance.  Here's the money shot from the Seattle Times article (emphasis added):

    Vance acknowledged that he has some critics in the party, including activists calling themselves Reagan Wing Republicans. The group says Vance and a "liberal elite" have run the party and have strayed from core party principles.

    Potential challengers are Sharon Bumala of Battle Ground, Clark County; Rose Strong of the Seattle area; and Mark Hulst of Mount Vernon.

    Vance said the critics are a small minority of the party's grass roots and typically are backers of Reed Davis, who ran unsuccessfully this year for the party's nomination to oppose U.S. Sen. Patty Murray.

    Vance infuriated Davis and his backers by barring him from the rostrum at the state Republican Convention when Davis refused to sign the so-called "11th Commandment" not to bad-mouth fellow Republicans.

    Imagine that ... Chris Vance, liberal.
