Wadhams Officially State GOP Chair

A mere formality, Dick Wadhams confirmed as state Republican Party chairman (video):
Republicans unanimously picked Dick Wadhams to be the new chairman for the state Republican Party on Saturday, hoping Wadhams can lead them out of the political wilderness after they lost several key races in two short years.

Wadhams had no opposition at the party's central committee meeting and was chosen by acclamation.

Wadhams said his first order of business will be to find a candidate for the U.S. Senate to replace GOP Sen. Wayne Allard, who is retiring next year, leaving an open seat.

Republicans are trying to prevent another searing loss after two straight years of losses, including a U.S. Senate seat, two U.S. House seats, the governor's office and control of the Legislature.

Wadhams said Democrats have had a string of issues since taking power, including a bill that angered the business community that would have made it easier to form a union.

"We've already seen that they can't control their own excesses. It's a target-rich environment," Wadhams said.
Wadhams--brilliant political strategist or dastardly scorch-earthed manipulator?

Both, depending on your point-of-view.

"Let the crap flow!":
