Saul Anuzis' Exellent Adventure!

Hey y'all, our Republican State Party Chairman Saul Anuzis attended the New Hampshire Primary. Here is some snippets from his "excellent adventure, dude." Ya have to be gen-xer to get that.

  • The bottom line…the race for the Republican and Democrat nomination is wide open!
  • I spent most of the day with New Hampshire GOP Chairman Fergus Cullen. We visited various campaigns’ election night parties, media rooms, radio “row” and did scores of interviews talking about how important Michigan was.
  • I called home to WWJ, The Detroit News, Detroit Free Press as well as others and then to the NY Times, Human Events, BBC, Bloomberg TV and Aljazeera. Nuh-uh, no way, no freakin way! Y'all know I woulda loved to have been a fly on the wall or phone on that conversation. The eyes of the nation and the world are turning to Michigan!
  • Today I continue with various media interviews and head to Concord to meet with Secretary of State Bill Gardner. Secretary Gardner is going to give me an inside view of how their voting and tabulation system works and then we’re going to discuss our presidential primary reform proposal.
  • It was an exciting day in New Hampshire as national pundits and media types all turned their focus to Michigan. Get ready Michigan…the eyes of the nation are upon us!!!
  • We are in the process of compiling a complete list of “party events” and “candidate appearances” around the state. If you have any additional information, please send it to our offices ASAP and we will update the list. The list is being sent to state and national media outlets regularly and updated on our web site and blog daily. To see the latest list go to:
  • Dick Morris on Hannity and Colmes said Michigan is “going to be decisive” and Bill Kristol of the National Review called it “ground zero” for the Republicans.
Well sheesh, took them all long enough to figure it out. Perhaps I am just impatient. Probably a bit of both.
  • So lets recap:
  • Huckabee wins Iowa.
  • Romney wins Wyoming.
  • McCain wins New Hampshire.
  • Michigan, Nevada, South Carolina and Florida come next…then February 5th.
  • With the race wide open, Super Tuesday is stacking up to be decisive and exciting!
  • Take advantage of this opportunity and get out and meet the various candidates face to face.
  • We issued the following press release last night:
  • MANCHESTER, N.H. – The polls in New Hampshire are closed and now Republican presidential candidates are heading to Michigan for what could be a watershed GOP primary in the Great Lakes State.
  • “Michigan is positioned to be a make-or-break state for Republican candidates,” said Michigan Republican Party Chairman Saulius “Saul” Anuzis. “Michigan is a better test of a candidate’s general election appeal than most of the early primary states. Michigan is a perennial bellwether political state. Its citizenry is extremely diverse, and it and has a long tradition of independent-minded voters. A Republican who does well in Michigan will do well across the country.” [more here]
