WILL PHYLLIS RUN? Long-time Republican National Committeewoman Phyllis Woods told the state Republican Party executive committee on Monday night that she’ll decide within the next several days whether to run for a second full-term in the post.
Keene businesswoman and former Cheshire County Republican Chair Juliana Bergeron announced during the weekend that she will run for the seat regardless of what Woods does.
Woods was elected to the RNC in October 2007, filling the unexpired term of Nancy Merrill, who resigned to work with the John McCain for President campaign. Woods was then elected to a full, four-year term in April 2008.
For GraniteGrok, this is an easy one. Given the choice between Phyllis Woods and Juliana Bergeron for Republican Committeewoman from NH, we’d be fine supporting Phyllis if she does decide to run again. While there have been a few times we’ve butted heads (a scant few, btw, but in politics, heartburns at times can occur), in the long term she has been a tireless worker and supporter of Conservative issues, causes, and candidates. She has willingly sacrificed her time, talen, and treasure. She has represented the Granite State with decency and tireless energy.
And oh, she has represented the Granite State well by standing steadfast on Principles.
