RNC Goes All In for Guam
Reid Wilson, a must-read for everything related to the Republican National Committee, has the latest on Chairman Michael Steele’s kindness to the island territories that provided his January 2009 margin of victory for the job.
State and local development dir. Shannon Reeves and new media dir. George Alafoginis, 2 top RNC officials, are in Guam this week as part of Steele’s commitment to provide more party resources to U.S. territories, they told the Pacific Daily News. It is Reeves’ second trip, after visiting last year. The 2 top staffers will also attend the party’s Lincoln Day Dinner at a local resort.
“The visit is a part of party building activities the committee undertakes everyday to ensure the Republican Party is competitive in every state and territory, which is an important priority for Chairman Steele. To do otherwise — and not make critical investments in our state and local parties — would be political malpractice,” said RNC communications director Doug Heye.
As I’ve said before, as long as the Republican Party is doing well, it’s hard to see how annoyance with these sorts of decisions will really hurt Steele.
