Saul Anuzis – “My job is to basically put our best candidate forward”

Anuzis Primary Favoritism Cost Republicans in 2006

There are three potential candidates for State Chairman currently being discussed Saul Anuzis, Dave Dishaw, Chuck Perricone, and Jerry Zandstra.

This campaign seems to be about two things: the loss of elections in Michigan and the ability of a candidate to be neutral in Primaries.  As someone who liked Jerry Zandstra in the Primary and would be likely to support him if he ran for Chairman, I distinctly remembered Anuzis not playing fair in the US Senate Primary. 

Anuzis clearly favored Bouchard at the expense of Butler and Zandstra.  This ended up backfiring as supporters of Butler and Zandstra were slow to help Bouchard because the party under Saul Anuzis was not playing fair in the Primary.

The Bouchard campaign was being run by Sterling Corporation.  I did a little research and found out that Sterling Corporation has been paid $1.5 million dollars by the Michigan Republican State Committee since Saul Anuzis was elected Chairman.

Anuzis to TV -8: “My job’s not to level any playing field. My job is to basically put our best candidate forward.”

Now Mitt Romney has hired Sterling Corporation to run his Presidential campaign.  It is very hard to believe that he would be neutral given his past record in Primaries.
