Lee Harris called me today to say he was ending his bid for SCDP Chair. Lee wanted to let everyone know of his decision and felt my blog was one way of doing that. Here is the email he asked me to post.
Reginald, Good talking to you today. As I mentioned by phone, I’m withdrawing from the SCDP Chair’s race. I think the race for chair should be a two-person affair and I don’t want to get in the way. Both Jay and Van are talented individuals and my hope is that whoever wins there will be new blood and positive change for the party. However, in a two-person race, my personal belief is that the best person for that job is Van Turner. I have known Van for several years and believe he will do great things and be able to effectively energize the party.
