Grassroots Call For Saul Anuzis As RNC Chair
Crossposted I don’t pretend to know and understand the ins and outs of internal party races like the RNC chair race, but I do know this, it makes sense for former MIGOP chairman Saul Anuzis to become chairman of the Republican National Committee. Saul has been the first to throw in for the race, and Steele is expected to announce his intentions this evening. Others | Read More »

Where the RNC Race Stands
Having said the other day that I though Ken Blackwell was unfortunately not picking up traction, I’ve talked to several people who disagree and make a very persuasive case for Blackwell. At the same time, the colossal mud slinging going on is getting funnier by the day and nastier. Here’s the scenario laid out right now.
As party leaders prepare to gather later this week in Washington, D.C., tasked with the unenviable mission of reassembling the pieces of GOP, the six-way battle for RNC Chairman is significantly heating up. The very dynamics of the race and current political climate lends itself to personal and even misleading attacks: Each candidate, vying to differentiate themselves in a fiercely Democratic environment, will invariably levy | Read More »
Where the RNC Chair’s Race Stands
There are two men at the top of list for RNC Chairman: Mike Duncan and Katon Dawson. One of them will be the next chairman. I’m not saying this because I want them, though truth be told I’d be happy with either. I’m saying this because I’ve been surveying RNC members and people on the outside. It seems very clear this is where we stand. | Read More »
Is This Really The Case For Mike Duncan?
This weekend I received some troubling news regarding Mike Duncan’s potential continued chairmanship at the RNC. To be sure, he is not involved and this is probably standard political chatter, but it is something to make note of. This weekend individuals who will be involved in the election process for the next RNC Chairman told me of being cornered by two Senior Administration Officials trying | Read More »
BREAKING: Special Meeting of the RNC
Acting outside the confines and rules of the Republican National Committee, Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) announced its intentions to host a debate for the 6 announced candidates – Mike Duncan, Michael Steele, Saul Anuzis, Ken Blackwell, Katon Dawson, Chip Saltsman – vying for the Republican helm on January 5, 2008. Norquist invited all 168 committee members to the debate, though they will not be permitted to ask any direct questions of the candidates. The committee members’ | Read More »
Media Bias or Just Personal Incompetence?
Following Mike Duncan’s public statement, Ken Blackwell and Saul Anuzis have now broken their notable silence on “CD gate” — both statements coming over 24 hours after news of the story initially broke. Mirroring much of the public’s response, two of the three total candidates to offer comment have forcefully criticized Saltsman’s actions, yet he still refuses to apologize for the apparent gaffe. When first cornered by The Hill’s Reid Wilson, | Read More »
Chip Saltsman Screws Up. Mike Duncan Overreacts.
To recap: Chip Saltsman sent out a CD of songs to RNC members for Christmas. One of the songs was “Barack the Magic Negro,” a parody featured on Rush Limbaugh. Apparently Mike Duncan does not listen to Rush Limbaugh, nor do the members of the MSM, all of whom are piling on Saltsman. As CNN notes The song, set to the tune of the 1960s | Read More »
Mike Duncan Should Do The Honorable Thing
Conservative author and Republican strategist, Michael Patrick Leahy, called today for RNC Chairman, Mike Duncan, to withdraw his bid for re-election effective immediately. Leahy made the case that Duncan’s lackluster leadership and failure to embrace new technology as a political tool was a major contributing factor in Republican losses in 2008. I concur. I find it surprising that Duncan is not embarrassed to show his face in public, let | Read More »
Is the RNC trying to be MoveOn?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5FGaL71XuA Is it just me? Chris P.S. This is my first post…don’t even know how to use the site. I just felt compelled.
Mike Duncan Will Run
If I had to call it, Mike Duncan is the front runner for election at RNC Chairman. No bones about it. Whether you might like it or not, Duncan is the guy to beat. The majority of the 168 men and women who will vote, like him and think he can do even better without having to stand in Bush’s shadow. I talked to Mike | Read More »
RNC Chairman kicks-off national tour at bustling Michigan HQ
Yesterday afternoon I had the opportunity to check out the new McCain regional headquarters down in Farmington Hills while they hosted a special guest. Republican National Committee Chairman Robert “Mike” Duncan was in town to officially “open” the center and to spotlight some of the tools and efforts the GOP is going to be using this fall in states like Michigan. While the Michigan McCain | Read More »
