Candidate Romanik disavowed by St. Clair County Republican Committee
The St. Clair County Republican Central Committee (SCCRCC) cut all ties with Republican candidate Bob Romanik in April after he verbally abused the GOP, its members and other candidates.
Furthermore, the local radio host changed his party affiliation from Democratic to Republican in order to run for state representative in the 114th District.
“Bob Romanik has demonstrated that he is only interested in a self-serving agenda and is not interested in improving our county,” SCCRCC Chairman Doug Jameson said. “He is using the electoral process to execute his own personal vendetta for past legal troubles.”
SCCRCC voted to cut all ties with Romanik after a series of verbal attacks upon the party and its members.
Among the statements Romanik made on his radio show was a declaration that he was a Democrat and false statements regarding the character of the SCCRCC chairman. He has also used profanity and threatened smear campaigns against various politicians and candidates.
“This election is a critical one for the people of St. Clair County," Jameson said. "Voters want real change, and the Republican Party is the voice of that change. Bob Romanik does not represent the St. Clair County Republican Party. By taking this action, we are taking a stand for decency and honesty.“
