In an unexpected move last week, the two rivals vying to be chair of the county Republican Party will work together. When past Chairman Robert Rego took his name out of the running, everyone thought Assemblyman Curt Hagman was a lock. At the last minute, former 3rd District Supervisor Neil Derry decided he wanted to challenge Hagman for the chairmanship. Before the vote was held, soon-to-be State Party Chair Jim Brulte gave a short talk in which he stressed the need for a united, inclusive GOP.
