Angela Graham-West to provide marketing, fundraising help to ailing Palm Beach County GOP

Angela Graham-West

The cash-strapped Palm Beach County Republican Party is turning to Angela Graham-West — a Raymond James financial adviser, former business professor and the wife of former U.S. Rep. Allen West — for marketing and fundraising help.

County GOP Chairman Ira Sabin said Graham-West, who is volunteering her time, will have the title “interim director of marketing and fundraising.”

With the local GOP plagued by lackluster fundraising, Sabin has laid off the party’s two paid staffers and tonight will ask Republican Executive Committee members to approve a 44 percent slashing of the local party budget, reducing it from the $310,000 approved earlier in the year to $172,667.

Graham-West said her role “won’t be so much fundraising as marketing…The idea is to bring some energy and a bit more excitement and just attract a broad range of people, which is what, on the national level, the Republican Party is supposed to be doing.”

She added: “Not being able to raise money is a symptom of not attracting a lot of people to what you’re doing and having them believe in what you’re doing.”

Graham-West attended a Forum Club of the Palm Beaches lunch on Tuesday in which Republican pollster and strategist Frank Luntz discussed the national GOP’s problems with attracting voters.

Graham-West, who said she agreed with much of what Luntz said, was asked how much the local GOP can do to counter broader Republican branding problems.

“There are issues on the national level,” she said. “But this is all I can do.”

    Hollie Cavanagh: Cavanagh had the final spot of the night, and she is just too cute — like a partly British real-life Tinkerbell. I could listem to Cavanagh and her parents speak all night. Cavanaugh, born in 1993, performed Celine Dion’s cover of Laura Branigan’s “Power of Love.” It is a big song for a little girl, and she missed a few notes in performance, but that’s just a quibble. Lopez and Tyler noticed the pitch problems, but praised her performance. Jackson said she blew it out of the box.
