Pugmire likes some Republican candidates better than others, but wants solidarity

Donald Trump is getting much of the attention but Cache County Republican Party Chairman Boyd Pugmire says there are a lot of other Republicans running for president in the 2016 election.

Pugmire says he is waiting to decide who he will support until after the first debate. But he says there are some excellent, well-qualified candidates.

“Right now, to me the top contenders in my opinion would be (Jeb) Bush, (Scott) Walker and (Marco) Rubio,” Pugmire says. “They are the three that I would support.

“Whoever gets the nomination I will support them. I think one of the biggest things we need to do this time is that even if it’s not our candidate, the Republican Party needs to stand behind whoever the nominee is.”

Pugmire says there is something else that is extremely important and that is to turn out the vote.
