Nary a delegate has been elected, nor a farcical primary vote cast. Nevertheless, my state GOP committee has endorsed John McCain to be the nominee for the Republican party in the race for president.
Reasons likely to be offered for this endorsement will include the following: All his other competition has dropped out, except for Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul. It is important for the GOP to unite behind a single candidate. Polls say John McCain can win. John McCain is Tom Ridge’s friend.
You’ll note none of these reasons have anything to do with the wishes of Pennsylvania’s GOP voters.
