GOP straw poll set for Saturday

Erie County’s registered Republicans are invited to vote in a presidential “straw poll” through a party-sponsored event set for 9:30 a.m. Saturday at Brounshidle American Legion Post 205, 3354 Delaware Ave., Kenmore.

Chairman Nicholas A. Langworthy said the event is a “party growing” exercise allowing those registered in the GOP to hear presentations from representatives of presidential candidates and then cast secret ballots for their preference. The result will be an informal and unscientific tally that reflects the thinking of at least those who come out to “vote” on Saturday.

“I think we will have a very good turnout and a lot of new faces,” he said, “and that’s the name of the game in growing our party.”
