Republicans in Greene County did not have a formal watch party, though a group of Ron Paul supporters held a gathering at a local restaurant. KSMU's Missy Shelton spoke with KSMU reporter Greg Leuthen about his conversation with the chair of the Greene County Republican Party.
Shelton: Greg Leuthen caught up with Danette Proctor, chair of the Greene County Republican Party. Greg, what did you speak with Danette about tonight?
Leuthen: I asked her why the Republicans didn't have a big watch party. She said that it's not unusual for them not to have a party because there are three primary candidates right now so they decided not to have a party.
Shelton: Since the start of the year, we only saw Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee come to Springfield and yet we had Democratic candidate John Edwards and then this weekend, former president Bill Clinton was in town. Was she surprised at all that that was the case?
Leuthen: Yes. She said she was very surprised that both Edwards and Bill Clinton came to Southwest Missouri, which is generally known as a Republican area and she was really disappointed that only Mike Huckabee came down to visit Springfield. She basically said that it was their loss, that the other two candidates, John McCain and Mitt Romney missed out by not coming down here.
