In the race for state GOP chairman, former 9/12 leader Tricia Pridemore just showed us something new: An endorsement from Sharron Angle, the Nevada Republican who last year ran an unsuccessful campaign against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid – and is now a candidate for the U.S. House.
Angle takes a slap at Pridemore’s chief rival, incumbent GOP chairman Sue Everhart, who is seeking a third term:
“I am one who believes in limited power and respect for term limits as a means to ensure that those elected to represent us do not rest on their laurels and point to past accomplishments.
“These attitudes can surface at all levels of leadership within our party, and now is not the time to pat ourselves on the back for the big wins in 2010. We must leverage that momentum and use it to defeat Barack Obama in 2012.”
Angle was among a number of endorsements for Pridemore from tea partyists and 9/12 leaders.
