From Eric Dondero over at Mainstream Libertarian.
8/29/7 -- With the race for US President on the GOP side becoming more and more solidified for frontrunners Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney and Fred Thompson, MI GOP Chairman Saul Anuzis made an appeal last night to Ron Paul supporters to stay within the GOP and support the eventual Nominee.
Anuzis was a guest on the Blog Talk Radio show "Libertarian Politics Live" hosted by Eric Dondero, and Co-Hosted by Andre Traversa. At the end of the half hour interview Anuzis said:
"I've been very involved in the conservative libertarian side of the Party... If you don't get involved, don't want to get involved you're not going to make a difference... throwing bombs from the outside it's not going to help. It's important to have people who are passionate about the issues involved. I mean take a look at a mainstream libertarian group like the Cato Institute. Cato has had an enormous influence... In Michigan we have the Macinac Center which is also libertarian... libertarian conservative.
They're important, but activists need to also get involved and get their hands dirty and not just jump in because Ron Paul is running and then jump out again... Their credibility is shot."
During the half hour interview Anuzis also discussed Michigan politics, GOP outreach efforts to minorities in the State, and the prospective run of Ted Nugent for Governor as a Republican for 2010.
