I just read Celia Cohen’s “Delaware Grapevine” column in your July 2012 issue. She is exactly right about the reason for the ailing Republican Party in Delaware. I am still a registered Republican because I have hope that the party will eventually come back around, but I am concerned that I may be waiting a while.
The Republicans on the far right tend to be the most vocal, so the party has bent too far in their direction. I have to believe there are a lot of people out there like me who, as Celia so eloquently put it, “Do not like government messing with their morals or their money.”
I do hope the Republican Party in Delaware finds itself again. I am optimistic that the pendulum will swing back toward the middle ground. But until then, I may be voting for some fiscally conservative Democrats.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Celia Cohen.
Now, if only the state GOP could find candidates like John Williams, Caleb Boggs and Bill Roth.
