The Republican Promary elections have become a total farce, with Dems crossing over to choose the Republican who their Dem will be running against. People are as free as a bird to become Republicans and vote for the Republican of their choice, but if we are even going to list the Republican "nominee" on the ballot it must mean he or she was chosen by the Reublican Party.
We cannot continue to allow the Democrats to choose our candidates in the state-sponsored open primaries.
The Republican Party of Montana must run its own elections and choose its own candidates.
See California Republican Party Bylaws--has something about not letting the state determine how their candidates are chosen.
