Last month, we touched a little bit on Phil Bryant's failed endorsement of Windy Swetman, after FoFo Gilich walloped Swetman in the May 12th Special Election for Biloxi mayor.
It seems as though the dust hasn't settled down in Harrison County; if anything, things are just getting started. We received some interesting documents that show quite a tiff between Harrison County Republican Committee and Joe Nosef, adding to the validity of rumblings we've heard that the MSGOP chair might be getting warm.
Below you'll find 3 documents.
The first is from Frank Genzer, chair of the HCRP Executive committee. Tense...is one way you might describe the letter to Chairman Nosef, as Genzer lays out a frustrated line of questioning about endorsement validity and authorization.
Attached along with the letter include Chairman Nosef's abundantly exaggerative endorsement of Windy Swetman, and challenge of FoFo Gilich's Republican bona fides.
At heart, these two show just how averse the state leadership was to Gilich's candidacy, but if the first two documents are the shot, here's your chaser -- a letter from Nosef thanking Gilich for his "loyal support of the Mississippi Republican Party," proclaiming his support "make[s] [their] work at the Mississippi Republican Party possible."
Essentially -- Mayor Gilich donated to his own opposition campaign. That's got to feel great.
The Mississippi Republican Party: They'll take your money, but what will they do with it?
