Radio Host Wilbur Ousts Esser as State GOP chairman

State GOP chairman and former legislator Luke Esser was ousted as chair of the party by longtime conservative radio host Kirby Wilbur. Delegates at the state Republican Party meeting held in Tukwila voted 69 for Wilbur, 36 for Esser and 7 for Bill Rennie.

Esser made the claim that the state GOP was in much better shape than it was four years ago when he was handed the reins, but Wilbur emphasized how Republicans in our state didn't do as well as they should have in the 2010 elections given the tidal wave for the right nationally.
