He told me that he originally thought about running for chair in 2002 but at that point in time, his ultimately decided that he could not spend the requisite time necessary to be successful due to family and business obligations. Those obligations have lightened up and he is now ready to lead the party.
His platform will be threefold:
- Rejuvenate the message of the party.
- Recharge the organization so that more voices are heard.
- Revamp the fundraising to not rely upon candidates and officeholders.
Obviously this is early in his campaign and the details are light at this point but I thought it was important to let you know that the activity within the HCRP is increasing. He will have a web site set up in the next week or so for you to check out.
Had I known he was going to run, I would have taken a better picture of him as he moderated the Houston Tea Party Society’s Health Care Town Hall on Saturday. This will have to do for now.
