Washington GOP Chair Talks Sacrificing Sheep

August 8, 2012

How many state party chairs would kill to get their desired opponent in a race?

Washington state GOP chair Kirby Wilbur really, really wanted Democrat Darcy Burner to win Tuesday's primary. Alas for Wilbur, Burner lost to Suzan DelBene.

"I am lighting candles, sacrificing sheep, whatever it takes," Wilbur said before the primary. "I'm begging, talking to God every day that it be Darcy Burner, because she is the Dennis Kucinich of Washington state. If Darcy is the nominee, we will get 60 percent of the vote, easy."

Burner, a fiery progressive, was considered a weaker Democratic choice for the general election than the self-funding DelBene.

What to do now, with DelBene as the nominee instead of Burner as the nominee? "We sacrifice more sheep, and we light more candles," Wilbur said.
