RNC Chairman Announces Mike Duncan as Chairman of Committee on Contests
WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus announced the appointment of Robert M. “Mike” Duncan, former RNC Chairman and National Committeeman for Kentucky, as the Chairman of the Committee on Contests. “I want to recognize Chairman Mike Duncan as the new Chairman of the Committee on Contests,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “I also want to congratulate the rest of the Committee on Contests who were elected at our summer meeting this past August. I know Mike Duncan is the right man to lead this important committee as we seat our delegates to the 2012 Republican National Convention. He is a dedicated servant to our Party and his leadership on the important Committee on Contests is vital as we work to make Barack Obama a one term president.”
“I’m honored to chair the Committee on Contests,” said Mike Duncan, “because of the crucial role it plays ensuring the integrity of the delegate selection process.” The Committee on Contests consists of eight members of the RNC, who were elected by the RNC members of their respective regions at the 2011 Summer Meeting in Tampa, FL, as well as a Committee Chairman appointed by the RNC Chairman. The role of the Committee on Contests is to adjudicate challenges to the seating of delegates at the Republican National Convention.

Linda Ackerman should resign from being and RNC Committeewoman
By Allan Bartlett (Scribe) on October 27th, 2009
As California’s female representative to the Republican National Committee, Linda Ackerman is supposed to be a leader in helping to rebuild our party and to get the GOP message of smaller goverment out to as many as possible. She is now running to get elected to the State Assembly. In the course of campaigning, she has mailed some fliers to Democratic households as I noted yesterday on this page. In these mailers, she specifically said this…
Linda Ackerman is not defined by being a Republican.
Open to new ideas, Linda won’t toe the party line, but she’ll do what’s right for our community and our state.
Ummm, you can’t serve two masters Linda. Which is it gonna be? If you don’t define yourself as a Republican, then I really don’t want you representing me and the rest of the state to the national party. In case you didn’t notice, we’re trying to regain our believability and credibility on economic issues back from the trashcan after eight years of George W Bush and Arnold Schwarzenegger. As Ronald Reagan said…
“we need to be raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people”
Since you no longer define yourself as a Republican, I am asking you to step down from your post and let someone who does want to fight for our party and our principles take over the post.
