Throughout the vote reporting process, State Party Chairman Luke Esser has said the party is reporting the presidential preferences of the delegates who were elected at the caucuses. But today we learned that Snohomish County, the third-largest county in the state, reported the preferences of all caucus attendees instead of the elected delegates.That's great. It doesn't help that both the WSRP chairman and communications director are both avowed McCain supporters. It may be time to clean house after this massive loss of face. Luke Esser's position is quickly becoming untenable.
One Snohomish County caucus chairman told KING 5 that the delegate preferences are "dramatically different" than the attendee counts.
And it does matter. In politics, perception is everything. Since last Saturday's primaries, Huck is up 21 points in Virginia.
