Jacqueline Smith: We should have a bigger role in choosing a president
Yes, there’s a Republican primary, too, though the head of Connecticut’s GOP didn’t want one.
Pop quiz: Who are the three candidates on the ballot? President Donald Trump, of course. The other two are former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld and California real estate developer Rocky De La Fuente, a frequent runner.
State GOP Chairman J.R. Romano said a Republican primary was unnecessary because only Trump is a viable candidate and it would be a needless expense to print the ballots. Secretary of the State Denise Merrill, who has the say in such matters, said the other two candidates meet the criteria, give them all a chance. Many more words were exchanged, opposing words such as “pure political pettiness” and “democracy.”
But let’s not go down that rabbit hole right now. Either Connecticut should move up its primary so our state is more of a player (Why not? Think smaller New Hampshire getting so much attention) or the lopsided caucus/primary system to choose candidates for leader of the free world should be reformed.
