Washington County Republicans speak up

The Washington County Republican Party held a Special Central Committee Meeting on Saturday, April 14, 2018 to endorse candidates in the upcoming Primary Election.  While the number of attendees was just short of the number needed to make an official endorsement, the Central Committee conducted a straw poll instead. The closest result was the Governor's race, where Rep. Knute Buehler beat Greg Wooldridge by just one vote. 

The Washington County Republican Party is committed to supporting all Republican primary candidates equally, regardless of who won our straw poll. We are appreciative of all who stepped up to run. After the Primary, we will all come together to support the winner.
