Anti-Saul Anuzis site surfaces
The site has no author, and it isn’t immediately clear who created it; however, a domain name lookup shows that the domain was registered Friday. The opposition research site — run-of-the-mill for general elections but somewhat odd for a closed election for party chairman — claims that Anuzis managed the ’06 and ’08 elections badly, is liberal on social issues and immigration, among other attacks.
Anuzis won the endorsement of Redstate blogger Erick Erickson, who — contrary to the claims of the site — praised his work “when the odds were against him” in Michigan. Yet Anuzis has his critics: Ben Smith of Politico reported on a letter that Debbie Joslin, an RNC member from Alaska, sent out to the other RNC members over Anuzis’ alleged support of a “National Popular Vote” system.
Though Wisconsin GOP Chairman Reince Priebus is considered the frontrunner, the opacity of the race and multiple rounds of voting make it effectively wide open. The 168 members of the RNC will vote Friday.
