Pelham GOP Chair Not Expecting Big Primary Turnout

PELHAM, N.Y. – Richie Bell, chairman of the Pelham Republican Party, does not see many Pelham citizens going out to vote in Tuesday’s New York State Republican Primary and it is not just because Mitt Romney is the leader of the race with a seemingly insurmountable 685 delegates.

“I never saw a big turnout unless it was in the village and we hardly ever had one,” said the Pelham Produce and Village Wine and Liquor owner. “More people should vote, I really believe in that, but they really don’t come out for primaries that much. I wish they could myself personally.”

Bell “was for Romney” out of all the Republican candidates for the presidency and with the former Massachusetts governor more than halfway to the 1,144 delegate threshold for the nomination, he is glad to see that coming to fruition.

If Romney does secure the GOP nomination, the lifelong Pelham resident thinks “a good move” would be to go with former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice as his running mate.

Pelham residents can vote Tuesday at the Daronco Town House and Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church while Pelham Manor residents will be voting at their Village Hall. Voting will take place from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
