Davidson County Repubs move to oust libertarian leader

Published on October 29, 2009 in Local and Politics, The Tennessean.Com

The Davidson County GOP said overnight that it has taken the first step toward removing First Vice Chairman Matt Collins, a leader within the party’s libertarian wing, from office.

Collins has been at odds with mainline Republicans. Over the summer he slammed two of the party’s candidates for governor, U.S. Rep. Zach Wamp and Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam, and publicly feuded with Chairman Kathleen Starnes over a plan to hold a town hall debate with Democratic Rep. Jim Cooper on health care. (link)
