Clark County GOP officers quit in Ron Paul flap
By CRISTINA SILVA
LAS VEGAS AP – At least five Clark County Republican Party officers have resigned, citing differences with Ron Paul supporters. Former Vice Chairman Woody Stroupe told the Associated Press on Thursday that Paul supporters “have been picking fights with the RNC” and are not interested in electing all Republicans. Others that resigned include Chairman Dave Gibbs, Precinct Organization Administrator Matthew Yarbrough, Communications Director Bobbie Haseley and Media Relations Director Michael Chamberlain.
Stroupe says he and the other former officers will instead work directly with the Republican National Committee.Paul supporters within the Clark County GOP have called for the resignation of RNC Chairman Reince Priebus for backing Mitt Romney.
Former Secretary Cindy Lake has been appointed acting chair. She says the Clark County GOP wants to elect conservative Republicans, not just Republicans.
