Live from the RNC: Duncan Drops Out
Mike Duncan has ended his bid for another term as RNC chairman, telling the hall that “the winds of change are blowing” in the party, and endorsing no one. Ohio GOP chairman Bob Bennett asked for a 15-minute recess and was loudly booed. There is no recess. Voting continues without Duncan telling his members how to move.
The worry here is that this sets up a race between Michael Steele and Katon Dawson. Jeff Frederick, the chair of the Virginia GOP, murmured that most of Duncan’s support will go to Dawson. Depending on they break that could put Dawson ahead for the fourth round.
