What Should Be Asked During the RNC Chairman’s Debate?
On Monday, the Americans for Tax Reform organization will be holding a debate between the candidates for chairman of the Republican National Committee. Confirmed participants are Saul Anuzis, Ken Blackwell, Katon Dawson, Chip Saltsman and Michael Steele. Also inivited, but not confirmed the last time I checked the website, are Mike Duncan, Tina Benkiser and Jim Greer.
At least part of the debate will be devoted to questions submitted and voted on via the RNCDebate.org website set up for this event. Rhode Island’s own Jon Scott has submitted the following question for consideration…
The NRSC and NRCC have concentrated solely on incumbents during the last several cycles and have been ineffective. We have had no discernible answer to the DNC’s “fifty state strategy”. Good candidates are hard to attract and money is the mother’s milk of politics. As a two time candidate for US Congress in Rhode Island; the bluest of blue states, I want to know what the contenders’ plans are to support federal races and state Party mechanisms in “weaker” states.If you’d like to see Mr. Scott’s question put to the candidates, you can vote for it by clicking here (registration required).
