Who Is Ann Wagner? — UPDATES

Posted in Government and Politics by TeeJaw on Friday, January 14, 2011, 10: 24 AM

Ambassador, Proven Republican Leader, Visionary, “West Point Mom” and the next Chairman of the Republican National Committee, I hope. The RNC raised only $7 Million for Republican candidates in the 2010 midterm election. That is one-sixth the amount it raised in the 2006 midterms and is contrasted against the $38 million raised by the DNC for Democrats in the 2010 midterms. Michael Steele has left the RNC with $20 of debt and a failed record of fund raising, which was his only job. New blood is clearly needed and I believe Ann Wagner is the best in the field of candidates. The voting by RNC delegates is today.

UPDATE: She lost. Bummer. She would have been just what the RNC needs, in my view. Reince Priebus won. He was chairman of the state Republican party in Wisconsin and that state went Red in the 2010 midterms. Maybe that’s why he won, but he’s a walking gaffe machine. Somebody smarter than me is going to have to explain this. I might be convinced otherwise, but for now I think the Republicans and the RNC are in some trouble. I’ve never given a dime to the RNC and now it looks like I never will. Oh well, at least the incompetent Michael Steele is gone.

UPDATE II: Reince Priebus may be better than I thought. Check out The Age of Priebus by Pejman Yousefzadeh
