RE: [RLC-Action] Re: RNC Chairman
- They probably endorsed him, because Texas Eagle Forum president Cathie Adams is very close to Phylis. Cathie is very close to the Texas state party chair Tina B., who is doing this "co-chair" candidacy with Blackwell. Also, Cathie is now the National Commitee woman for Texas ;)
hence...the Eagle Forums endorsement of Blackwell. its more about Tina B and Cathie connection.

Subject: Re: [RLC-Action] Re: RNC ChairmanHave we considered a negative endorsement?
I had thought Ken Blackwell was acceptable having heard a very good
speech from him at the AFP conference in DC, but he just received the
endorsement of Eagle Forum, and IMO anyone they endorse we should openly
condemn as a matter of principle.

We can't get a libertarian RNC chairman without first having a significant
number of county and state GOP chairmen. We need to trickle up. We are doing a
bit in this direction, but it is a long term task. We need to learn who are
the fair-weather fiscal conservatives and who are the real free marketers, and
then support the latter at all levels of the GOP organizations.
