Pulling in the Welcome mat

The Waco Herald Tribune had a story about the growing pains among the Republicans in McClennan County. Local conservative Hispanics have  started up the Hispanic Republican Club of McLennan County in an attempt to bring local Hispanics, young voters, and others involved in the Republican party. One of their primary goals is to recruit candidate for vacant Republican precinct chairs. Currently, about 40 precinct chairmanships are vacant.

Their efforts are not being warmly received by the local Republican leadership. Current party leader M.A. Taylor remarked: “What they fail to understand is about half of those precincts are minority precincts, and you’re not going to find any Republicans in them.”

Does Taylor want to keep it that way? Sometimes party leaders get in the way of a party’s growth.
