Maury County Republican Party chair, Patricia Junkin, writes that the party’s decision to hold primary elections for county offices in 2014 will not cause certain fiscal problems, as apparently has been alleged.
Local GOP organizations around the state this year are wrestling with the decision of whether to adopt primaries (if they don’t, like Hamilton County, already hold them). It’s as if they all got the same memo.
Several local parties have moved to adopt primaries, but Montgomery County (home of Clarksville) Republicans overwhelmingly voted not to hold partisan elections for local office.
There should be a statewide tally available after the deadlines have passed, and I’ll post it when I find it.
