LEGISLATIVE PRIMARY ELECTION SURVEY REPORT 2012
Welcome to Conservative Republicans of Wyoming –the organization you’ve been waiting for.
CROW is a Political Action Committee dedicated to the cultivation of conservative principles and leadership by and through the Wyoming Republican Party (WYGOP.)
This is precisely what the conservative majority in a two-party system has every right to expect from their dominant party. And yet, two longstanding problems in Wyoming politics have worked against it: 1) disunity and disorganization between conservative individuals and groups and 2) substantial liberal influences within WYGOP itself.
Last year a concerned Republican reported approaching a newly installed State Executive Officer of WYGOP to ask a pointed, but optimistic question: “What are you going to do about all the Republican politicians who are disloyal to the Party and its platform?” The answer was crisp: “Nothing. It’s not my responsibility; it’s yours.”
Exactly so. It is not realistic to expect top-down solutions to political problems in a constitutional republic. It is our responsibility to unify Wyoming’s conservative majority and to elect the kind of leaders who will honor conservative values and interests.
These are the things that CROW has been designed to do. If you wish to learn more, please explore our website and visit with some of our members and leaders. As their numbers and political victories continue to grow, you may find yourself seeking to join them.
In the cause of a conservative Wyoming,
Harlan J. Edmonds
Provisional State CROW Chairman
WHEREAS the philosophical inheritance, religious understanding, and enduring genius of western civilization do culminate in the indivisible essence and constitutional spirit of American conservatism, the Conservative Republicans of Wyoming (CROW) are dedicated to the preservation, promotion and defense of these things, and thereby, the integrity of Wyoming and
the United States of America.
