Local GOP chair happy to see Trump’s decline

Cache County’s Republican Party Chairman says he enjoyed watching the presidential candidate’s debate Wednesday night but he did feel the moderators tried to get the candidates to play off each other too much.

What Boyd Pugmire definitely liked was that he feels there was one more sign that Donald Trump is on his way downhill.

“He’s used to getting his own way his whole life,” says Pugmire. “He’s never had a time when he didn’t get his way.

“To have polls start changing on him like they did, and have Ben Carson pulling ahead I think it was noticeable in the debate (Wednesday) night in how they were reacting to each other. And, I think really all the candidates did a pretty good job, overall.”

Jeb Bush is Pugmire’s favorite candidate and although Bush didn’t do too well in the Wednesday debate, Pugmire says the election is a long ways away and he believes he will start doing better.
