The Tompkins County GOP Executive Committee has issued a vote of no confidence in the leadership of House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The resolution states that the party “Has no confidence in the “leadership” of House Speaker Boehner and Senate Majority Leader McConnell, and requests the respective Republican congressional caucuses to move to substitute new leaders who will vigorously contest the President’s and executive branch’s unconstitutional or overreaching executive orders and actions.”
As one of the ring leaders of the resolution who debated passionately in favor of it, this author can attest to what a major victory it was to pass this resolution. This no confidence vote sends a message that is loud and clear. A message that should resonate with Republicans across the state and the country. We demand that our elected officials abide by the Constitution and the Republican Platform. This resolution was a major win for conservative activists who have been fighting hard against the GOP establishment, and I hope it will inspire others to take the fight to the establishment at their local GOP committees.
Below is the resolution posted in its entirety.
