☛Alaska GOP chair Randy Ruedrich out? Joe Miller angling for spot in leadership?

Attendees at the Republican Party of Alaska's annual convention in Anchorage are all aflutter with the buzz Friday that longtime state GOP Chairman Randy Ruedrich will not be running for re-election.

Ruedrich did not return calls for this story, so it could be just another rumor in a series of rumors about Ruedrich. But if it's true, it's a major change for Alaska's GOP.

For years, Ruedrich has been able to keep a tight grasp on his party, surviving attempted coups, as well as animus from former Gov. Sarah Palin and her tea party-esque supporters. Alaska's GOP has been split between libertarian and big business factions, perhaps even more so than Republicans in other states. But over the decades he’s led the GOP, Ruedrich has managed to keep them together, making sure the state remains ruby red on the electoral map.

The party must vote on its next chairman, and with Ron Paul supporters reportedly making a coordinated splash at the convention, it's unclear who would be favored to take Ruedrich's place. The vote will take place on Saturday afternoon.

Good news

Joe Millers wife has openly endorsed Ron Paul and is even a member of Alaskans for Ron Paul facebook - but Joe has stopped short of a fullblow endorsement, probably for stealth political gain - and although he's sort of in the neocon "lets stop the terrorism" mentality he believes in consitutionally declared wars.

Randy Reudrich is terrible - he intentionally changed the rules to allow teleconference voting at district conventions because he couldn't attend his own convention - but little did he know it helped a lot of Paul supporters who couldn't attend in person, which has pissed off all the oldguard republican leadership - he needs out!!

Miller...

I believe that's the guy who was the GOP senate nominee in 2010 who lost to Murkowski's write-in campaign

Miller was backstabbed by the entrenched GOP establishment

They flipped and helped ugh, Murkowski write in campaign.

Miller is anti-Fed

Yep, he is a great liberty

Yep, he is a great liberty candidate who wants to audit and end the fed.

To: Evan
Subject: Questions

1. Do you think the Alaska Republican Party is intentionally trying to make it difficult for Paul delegates to complete state party business and to participate at the state convention or national convention?
2. I've been forwarded several emails, a few of which originated with you, that accuse party officials of continually making it difficult -- through disinformation or mismanagement -- for Paul delegates to participate. Please comment on that.
3. Do you stand behind your previous statement in March, that perhaps its time for new leadership for the Alaska GOP?
4. How did the Paul 2012 national presidential campaign become involved, to the best of your understanding as a Paul organizer for Alaska?
5. What are the prospects for some Santorum-Alaska delegates to land in the Paul column?
This will be running tonight. Thanks Evan. Hope you are well.
