Clark County Republican Party holds precinct caucuses

Poll: 75% plan to vote for Semi Bird for Washington governor

By , Columbian staff writer

In a straw poll conducted Saturday at the Clark County Republican Party’s precinct caucuses, 91 percent of respondents said they will vote for former President Donald J. Trump in the primary election. Six percent said they will vote for Nikki Haley, and 3 percent said they are undecided.

The poll comprised some 750 Republicans who attended the caucus, Clark County Republican Party Chairman Matthew Bumala said in an email.

The caucuses were originally scheduled for Jan. 13 but were cancelled due to inclement weather. The caucuses are typically held in 11 locations throughout the county. This year they were held consecutively at the Clark County Event Center at the Fairgrounds.

In the poll, 75 percent of respondents said they will vote for Semi Bird in the primary race for Washington governor. Fifteen percent said they will vote for Dave Reichert, and 10 percent said they remain undecided.

The precinct caucus kicks off a process that will ultimately culminate at the Republican National Convention. The purpose of the caucus is to allow Republican Party members in each of Clark County’s 314 party precincts to choose the delegates to represent them at the party’s county convention, slated for March 16 at the Clark County Event Center at the Fairgrounds. From there, delegates and alternates will be elected to be representatives at the Washington State Republican Convention in April, followed by the National Republican Convention in July.

Local Republican voters are encouraged to attend the county convention. For information on how to participate and volunteer, go to www.clarkrepublicans.org.
