Drama in RNC Election as Ron Paul Supporter Makes Run for Chairman

And check out great campaign video:

"Some last minute drama has been injected into the race for chairman of the Republican National Committee as a national committeeman from the Ron Paul wing of the party is mounting a last minute effort to challenge Reince Priebus for chairman.

But as he tries to get support for his bid, Mark Willis of Maine is facing questions from other Republicans on the committee about whether he broke party rules and supported Paul as a write-in for president over GOP nominee Mitt Romney in the 2012 general election, The Daily Caller has learned.

The reason for these questions: Willis was actually listed on the 2012 general election ballot in Maine as a declared write-in running mate to Paul, the Texas libertarian.

Had he voted for himself and Paul over Romney, Willis could be removed from the committee, according to party rules. Republican Party rule 4(b) says, “The Republican National Committee shall have the power to declare vacant the seat of any member who refuses to support the Republican nominee for President of the United States or Vice President of the United States.”

But in an interview with The Daily Caller on Thursday, Willis strongly disputed that he supported Paul in the general election and said he had nothing to do with being listed as a write-in candidate on the ballot. He said he supported Romney.

We went to our local REC meeting last night and found it disappointing. It's encouraging to hear of people who are working for better governance.

Mark's 8 point plan

Washington, DC – Mark Willis, Republican National Committeeman from Maine, who is challenging Reince Priebus for the Chairmanship of the Republican National Committee, has announced his Eight-Point Plan to get the Party back on track.


Ron Paul is My President

I just got a reply fro the Idaho Chairman

He will not be attending the meeting so it does not matter about him personally, but... He had never heard of Mark Willis, and this is a Ron Paul supporter. Someone from Mr. Willis' staff might want to try to get in touch with the chair from every state, at least let them know he is running.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Make your voice heard

we have a petition that sends a support letter email in support of Mark Willis for RNC chair to all RNC voting members of any state. let's pick up 1 more state!


Could a mod please embed this FANTASTIC video on Willis

into the OP?


Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul

Yes Please

Ron Paul is My President

the old guard doesn't get it

Everyone is sick of these politics of personal destruction.

What the GOP minions are out do is to destroy ALL of Ron Paul's legacy and his followers. PERIOD

We are all to a man, in their cross hairs and we must all stay centered and keep the pressure up.

We are exactly like the 1st revolutionaries and the old guard is exactly like the British crown.

Make no mistake about it. The establishment is hoping to do to us EXACTLY what the British crown was hoping to do to Washington, Franklin, and Jefferson.

They want to watch us ALL swing...



The Reince of Darkness and

The Reince of Darkness and his minions will not allow this inconvenient intrusion. A cadre of demon lawyers and loyalists has been summoned from the depths of RNC hell to deter any blasphemy against the prevailing order.

In case of failure, they will read pre-scripted election results from a teleprompter.

What a bunch of hooey

Mark did NOT know anything about being on the ballot. He was as surprised as the rest of us.

He's a great guy and has what it takes to stand up to Reince Priebus. He's got an amazing background for this job.

He and his wife Violet, were duly elected National Delegates that went to Tampa - even after they were unseated by the corrupt status quo GOP up here in Maine. And he is the newly elected National Committeeman for the Maine GOP.

Mark is very intelligent and gutsy. He is also attorney among other qualifications that make him perfect this and all of us up here are ecstatic that he made the decision - after careful deliberation - to take on the RNC.

If he cannot do it, no one can!

Ron Paul is My President

Of course he didnt any more than the Judge was in on being VP to

Ron in California. We just circulated elector affidavits and that was the pick that got enough electors in.

Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul

Yes please

please put this video on front page.

Ron Paul is My President

All I am sure of, is that

All I am sure of, is that Reince has got to go, and IMO, the Republican "nominee" is not set in stone until after the Convention, sham as it was..

I Totally Agree Crickett...

As long as he is there, there will be little chance of a liberty candidate winning..

Just one more state!
