Incoming county GOP chairman sees interest high party strong By DAVID DEKUNDER Staff Writer The possibility of Pat Buchanan becoming the OOPs presidential nom inee in November will not hamper the partys efforts in local or state races incoming Comal County Republican Chairman Donald Hensz said Henszs comments came after Buchanan a conservative political commentator and columnist won a surprising victory in the New Hamp shire primary on Tuesday over Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole and former Tennessee Gov Lamar Alexander Buchanan garnered 27 percent with Dole a close second at 26 percent Alexander finished third with 23 per cent Hensz sees the close finish in New Hampshire as a sign that the Republi can Party is very strong There is no clear cut message that came from the voters in New Hamp Hensz said It is really early because of all the rhetoric that is com ing out from both the media and the candidates The voters are showing a high interest in this race which signi fies that the party is really Buchanans protectionist stands on trade and his plans to build a wall along the border to stop illegal immigration have had some labeling Buchanan as an Republi cans across the nation have raised con cerns that if Buchanan is the nominee he drive voters away from the Republican ticket thus damaging the GQjPs efforts to retain control of Con gress and hampering Republican can dicjates on the local and state level But Hensz dismissed this notion saying that the presidential candidates and saying anything to get the nomination 1 dont believe there are any extrem ists in the Republican Party as the one in the other Hensz said referring to President Bill Clinton I think the Republican Party is healthy when we have a broad spectrum of candidates to choose Besides Hensz said most of the vot ers in Comal County are paying atten tion to the highly contested local races which will be held during the March 12th primaries Hensz said once the smoke from the primaries is cleared and the Republican nominee is selected the GOP will be ready to take on Clinton and the Democrats in November We will have some mutterings once the nomination process is fin but once the voting begins in November the Republican Party will be united and Hensz said Gloria Suarez Sasser chairwoman of the Comal County Democratic Party said she wants to stay out of whats happening in the other partys prima but she expressed concern over Buchanans victory in New Hamp shire It is Sasser said I am uncomfortable with the remarks he has made recently and in the past I dont like what he Buchanan repre sents such as mean spiritedness dis tortions and blowing things out of pro Sasser said she will stand strongly behind Clinton when election time rolls around in November 1 will do
