I don't have any pictures really from last night's event. Our friend Michael Swartz at Monoblogue did have his camera and I'm sure was documenting the full proceedings. Richard Cross also shares his thoughts here.

Harris, who supported Moore in a contested primary, said he had no problem with her decision to change affiliation. He said he was confident she would soon return to the party fold.
"Tari Moore is a good Republican and I think at some time she will," Harris said. "This is local Cecil County politics and, like I say, will work itself out in the end."I'm not entirely sure how Tari Moore could be a "good Republican" when she abandoned the party for crass political gain. She certainly has lost my trust to be anything other than an opportunist.
- There was no discussion in any formal venue about the status of Chairman Alex Mooney. There was no motion of no confidence in him, there was no move to remove him, nor did he indicate that he was going to step aside.
- There was also very little discussion of the criticism of National Committeeman Louis Pope and the Rule 16 conflict, either. I do know that he was encouraged to address it during the Central Committee meeting, but it did not come up during his 17 minute officer report.
- There is absolutely no consensus on who the candidate for Governor will be in 2014, though David Craig and Blaine Young both made impressive showings.
