RE: [RLC-Action] Re: RNC Chairman
For what it’s worth from Nebraska,
I agree that RLC would be best served by welcoming the new Chair after-the-fact. I’ve also been told by a friend in Michigan that Anuzis went out of his way (after the initial dustup) to meet with Ron Paul groups in Michigan and try to bring them into the process.
That being said, it seems to me that a “negative endorsement” just hurts the organization. If there’s no definitive preference for one candidate or the other, silence makes sense. A negative endorsement—if that person were to end up winning in spite of it—would just hurt the organization.

Saul Anuzis has been a member of the RLCMI eGroup for some time and agreed to participate in one of the events for our canceled 2008 RLC convention in Detroit. But, some of our members don't consider him particularly competent (at least in Michigan).
Both Blackwell and Anuzis went out of their way to insult Ron Paul during the campaign, so I'm not sure that endorsing either of them would win us any friends among Paul supporters.
When Ron Paul was mentioned during the Chair Debate hosted by Grover, they all expressed a desire to include his supporters in the party.
The best approach, for the RLC itself, might be a letter welcoming the new Chairman after-the-fact.

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.
