Best Reason to Give the Republican Party One More Chance 

Rep. Beth Harwell

Harwell came across as a reasonable grown-up leader in the legislature this session—meaning she was skating on very thin ice with the Republican Party. She voted against allowing guns into bars. She led the move to dismiss a pointless ethics complaint against House Speaker Kent Williams, forcing crybaby Republican leaders to succumb to her wishes in the interest of bipartisan cooperation. Then she told then-GOP chair Robin Smith not to kick Williams out of the party. Smith ignored Harwell. Now, guess what? The party is thinking about taking back Williams because he's one of the most popular politicians in the state. JEFF WOODS
