Ellen Barrosse has the endorsement of Bill Sahm and Jerry Wood

Ellen Barrosse is running for Delaware GOP National Committewoman:

I’m excited to announce the endorsements of Bill Sahm, Chair of the Northern NCC Region and Jerry Wood, Chair of the Sussex Region.

John Still, former state senator, and Michael McDermott, former Christiana/Milcreek Regional Chair, have also endorsed me.

I’m honored by their confidence, and I look forward to working with them to rebuild the Party.

It’s only a few days until the State Committee Dinner. I’m hoping to see you there. If you haven’t yet bought your tickets yet, click here.


Bill Sahm
Chair, Northern NCC Region
I have the greatest respect and admiration for Priscilla Rakestraw and all the effort she has expended on behalf of our Delaware Republican Party over her many years as our National Committee Woman. However, the results of the last two election cycles have been disastrous both for our party and the people of Delaware.We face a voter registration disadvantage of more than 110,000 voters and a divided Party. The only Statewide office we hold is that of State Auditor and we are outgunned in the General Assembly by almost 2 to 1. We need to dramatically change this in 2012 and beyond.

That is why I am honored to endorse Ellen Barrosse for National Committee Woman. I’m supporting Ellen because she has the skills, expertise, drive, and energy to raise funds, recruit winning candidates, and reunite our Party. She is a superb communicator and accomplished political organizer.

Please join me in electing Ellen Barrosse as our next National Committee Woman.

Jerry Wood
Chair, Sussex RegionEllen Barrosse possesses the strength of conviction, character and vision that is necessary to address the issues that face Delaware and our country today. She is an accomplished business owner and is deeply concerned about the future of our country and our Party.Ellen has the experience, judgment and focus necessary to guide our Party through these challenging times.

In Sussex County, we honor the traditional American freedoms, values and opportunities that made our nation the greatest country in history. Ellen Barrosse shares our Republican values, and for these reasons I proudly endorse her for Republican National Committeewoman for the State of Delaware.

John Still
Former Delaware Senator

Ellen has my complete support for National Committeewoman. It is a very important and symbolic position in the GOP and her background, commitment, and business sense are welcome assets for all concerned.

The GOP is in real need of continuing change and Ellen has an opportunity to make a positive difference with: the GOP, candidates, volunteers, committees, fundraising, and communications to and within the party. With her depth and breadth of business experiences, having met a payroll, and strong family values….she is a breath of fresh air. I thank her and her family for offering her time and talents – we will be the better for it.

Priscilla has accomplished much in her years of service to the GOP and for her years of dedication and commitment I say a hearty thank you. I sincerely hope and trust she and her supporters will work collaboratively and for the good of all concerned as our GOP marches to the beat of a new drummer.

Michael McDermott
Former Chair, Christiana/Millcreek Region

Careful top-level change is necessary to the strategic vitality of every organization.
I support Ellen because the time is right for that kind of change for our party.

I didn’t know Priscilla was even elected.
