So on Monday, Carl Wimmer announced that he was leaving Utah to go work for the Nevada GOP:
Much rejoicing was had to be rid of Wimmer and his stache:
Except wait, what’s this?
“He’s not coming on as political director,” Nevada Republican Party Chairman Michael McDonald said in an interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “I have never spoken to him. I’m sure he’s a great guy, but I never committed to hiring him. And I think we have several people in Nevada capable of doing the job.”
Oops. Jumping the gun much there Carl?
Many questioned his ability to perform in Nevada while still technically living in Utah and commuting back and forth weekly. Doing things half assed is the Wimmer way, so why should he move to Nevada when he can stay here half the time? Following his legislative feat that was naming a state gun, and even after having a special district carved out for him in spring redistricting, he managed to lose that and resigned from the legislature. This was to be his next grand adventure. His job in Nevada would have been to try and reunite the Nevada GOP after being split between Romney and Paul supporters in recent months, a split in the ranks so strong that the RNC has all but written off the Nevada GOP and has actually setup a separate infrastructure named Team Nevada to push Romney this fall.
Instead it looks like he’ll be relegated to a position he didn’t want, far outside of the ranks of GOPdom. Briefly breaking his total silence on the issue, he said, “It sounds to me as if the cart was put before the horse. If we just hold our breath for 48 hours, this might all pan out.” Please Carl, hold your breath for 48 hours and let us know how that turns out.
