Saline County Republicans Favor Cruz

KSAL Staff - September 17, 2015 9:35 am

Elections Director Bryan Caskey said Monday that the office has re-examined a state law that makes it a felony to disclose a ballot's contents and concluded it applies to election officials but not voters themselves.

Saline County Republicans favor Ted Cruz as the party nominee in the presidential race. The local party gathered Wednesday evening to watch the latest debate.

The group participated in a straw poll both before, and after the debate. Here are the results:

Poll Before the Debate:

  1. Dr. Ben Carson
  2. Donald Trump
  3. Carly Fiorina
  4. Ted Cruz
  5. Hike Huckabee

Poll After the Debate:

  1. Ted Cruz
  2. Dr. Ben Carson
  3. Donald Trump
  4. Carly Fiorina
  5. Mike Huckabee

Overall, Carly Fiorina and Ben Carson are the big winners in last night’s Republican presidential debate, at least on Twitter. Fiorina and Carson each picked up 22-thousand new Twitter followers. Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Fiorina now has 515-thousand followers and Carson, the retired neurosurgeon, surged to 624-thousand. Those numbers are still way behind frontrunner Donald Trump. The billionaire real estate developer picked up ten-thousand, taking his total to about four-and-a-quarter million.

This only go’s to prove how out of touch our local party leaders are from the rest of us Republicans. Much like those in Topeka and Washington DC

I bet that was a good gathering. Did they even know what they were watching. Its hard to be a republican in this county with the leadership of this group.
