  1. Bill Prim……Our new Sheriff…….

    Happy Trails is soooooooooooo Happy !

    Congratulations Bill !!!!!!!

  2. Probably still won’t be the end of bad ideas with some RINO’s left to carry on

  3. Considering my campaign budget was 10% or less of my Democratic opponent’s, this victory represents the hard work and commitment of my supporters.

    Thank you so Much!

    And Congratulations to all the Republican Candidates who worked so hard and won this great victory.

    -John Hammerand

  4. Mrs. is right ………

    We’re still stuck with smelly pachyderm RINOs like Jung, Heisler, Daftkorn, Walk-Up, et al …….

    Is Tina Hill GONE FOR GOOD? …….

    or will she reappear like a dormant ebola ebola outbreak???

  5. Surprised by Gasser barely edging Chirikos.

    He had the biggest name recognition in the race.

    He probably had the most signs.

    He had the support of the county party.

    So, he can’t blame his struggle on any of that.

    Could it be that once people get to know Andy Gasser, they like him less and less?

  6. I’m with OldMan and Mrs. Gonna have to keep a close watch on those loose canons.
