RE: [RLC-Action] Re: RNC Chairman
Bill: Please advise how Ken Blackwell insulted Ron Paul during the campaign. While I agree that we should stick to principles over personalities I think it goes too far to impugn one personality for not favoring your favored personality without even explaining how or why. I have known him for some time and in all of my experience with him Ken Blackwell has always been a man of principle and a gentleman –if you are going to demean his character, please be specific. I have never heard or read of him insulting anyone, until now. -Geo

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.
