Why Ed Cox Must Leave as NY GOP Chair

In the sports’ arenas the people who are ultimately responsible for the win and loss columns are the leaders, the coaches and managers of their respective teams. The buck stops at their feet for the success or failure of their stables. They take the glory for success and they pay the penalty for the defeats. The same blueprint must, as well be used in the game of politics. In New York State, longtime GOP Chairman, Ed Cox, has to be handed his walking papers. Those of us long in years remember him as the glamour son-in-law of former President Richard Nixon. But he is now an acknowledged failure. Glory is not long lasting in any arena.

An example of his poor leadership was the bashing Marc Molinaro, the Republican challenger in the 2018 election for NYS governor received at the hands of the incumbent, Andrew Cuomo. After all, this had to be viewed by pundits as a great year for a Republican running in NYS. With Trump, a Republican at the nation’s helm, the economy was soaring, with unemployment numbers plunging, his strong foreign policies putting Iran, Russia, North Korea and China in defensive positions, Israel once again our close ally and at the same time, the New York State economy in the dumps, Mr. Molinaro was seen as a great candidate. But he got clobbered by a weakened, bumbling Cuomo.

Molinaro only garnered 38% of the vote. His campaign was a disaster form the start. It was terribly underfunded. He did not place a single television advertisement of his campaign. In the last elections Democrats won control of the State Senate and increased their majority in the State Assembly. Democrats now hold 40 seats in the State Senate as opposed to the Republicans’ 23. In the State Assembly, Dems fill 106 seats while Republicans occupy only 43. The state is now under total Liberal-Leftist control and someone must pay for that. And the finger points to current Republican Chairman Ed Cox. He has to be replaced with a more energetic, vocal individual who will rally voters to go to the polls and vote in order to unmake New York State as a One Party State. We need opposition voices to the Far Leftist Liberals now in charge. A new head coach would help.
