At the end of January the Republican Party will elect a new national spokesman. The national chair of either political party is usually selected by the President. But since there is no Republican President to appoint the new RNC Chair there will be an election in which the 168 members of the Republican National Committee will vote. The voting body of the RNC is made up of State Chairs and a National Committeeman and Committeewoman from all 50 states (and US territories of Guam, Puerto Rico, etc.).
RNC chairman candidates include Ken Blackwell of Ohio, Saul Anuzis of Michigan, Katon Dawson of South Carolina, Mike Duncan of Kentucky, John "Chip" Saltsman of Tennessee, and Michael Steele of Maryland. All are considered conservative and competent to lead the party.
RNC Committeeman Morton C. Blackwell of Virginia recently prepared a questionnaire in which all six candidates responded to 37 questions regarding the leadership of the Republican Party. Their responses are posted on Townhall.com. This is a must read if you care about the future of the Republican Party. The newly elected RNC Chair will become the national spokesman for the party and will oversee a $100 million budget. I can't overstate the importance of this position and what it means for the conservative movement going forward.
We also have the unique and historic opportunity to take part in a national conversation regarding the election of the next RNC Chair. There will be a live debate on January 5 that will include all declared candidates. You also have the opportunity to submit questions and vote on questions that will be asked. The debate is moderated by Grover Norquist and sponsored by his organization, Americans for Tax Reform (ATR). Follow this link for all the details.
