Luke Esser Out, Kirby Wilbur in as Chair of WSRP

The Washington State Republican Party has elected Kirby Wilbur of Americans for Prosperity as chair of the party, ousting Luke Esser who has held the seat the past 4 years.

From the Seattle Times,

“Delegates at a Republican Party meeting in Tukwila gave 69 votes to Wilbur, 36 to Esser and 7 to Bill Rennie.”

“Esser argued the state GOP was in much better shape than it was four years ago when he took the reins, but Wilbur said Republicans should have done better in the 2010 elections given the national wave.”

“The question is not are we better off. The question is are we as good as we could be?” Wilbur said.

Wilbur is right. With the massive results east of the Cascades, we should have seen much better results in Washington State.

I can think of at least 2 legislative seats Clark County should have easily taken away, Jim Moeller’s and Tim Probsts’.

With Moeller’s Candy and Soda Tax outright rejected in November, he too should have been easily defeated.

Laura Sample was elected Vice-Chairman of the Washington State Republican Party.

American Thinker: “the grass roots Republicans have risen up and wrested control of the GOP from the Bellevue Establishment. Out here, this is nothing short of a revolution.”

“Don’t be surprised if Kirby Wilbur emerges as one of the national GOP’s leading spokesmen.”
