Consensus Reached on Pelura Successor
We reported yesterday about the desire for many to remove Chairman Jim Pelura, but that there was no consensus replacement candidate. Sources now tell me that a consensus has built around former House Minority Leader and Insurance Commissioner Al Redmer to succeed Pelura.
The biggest issue at the moment seems to be actually ousting Pelura as Chairman.
“You can’t do it at a convention,” one source tells me. “You can’t get two-thirds of the Central Committee members to agree that the sky is blue, much less agree to oust the state chairman.”
