Top conservatives back Blackwell

Two dozen conservative luminaries will announce today their support for former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell for Republican Nation Committee chairman.

The group, which mixes leading economic conservatives, including Steve Forbes and Pat Toomey, and leading social conservatives, including James Dobson and Tony Perkins, had agreed to endorse and campaign together for a candidate based on a questionnaire assembled by veteran GOP activist Morton Blackwell (no relation).

"The conservative endorsers noted that there were other good candidates, but all agreed that Ken Blackwell is the best choice. They intend to contact grassroots conservatives across the country and ask them to urge the three RNC members from each state and U.S. territory to vote for Ken Blackwell for RNC chairman," they said in a press release going out shortly.

Blackwell appears to be one of the leading candidates in a race for the support of 168 members of the RNC, in which success can be difficult to gauge. Blackwell now has the public support of 12 RNC members. Some of the candidates will debate in Washington, D.C., on Monday.

Just unreal

It just angers me to no end, the RNC will not change it's ways. I guess they love to get their jollies off laughing at people.

Show your support on the Ron Paul Map !
People worldwide support Dr. Paul too :-)

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!

A clear message

from the people who presently control the GOP: More of the same. Not for me though, I've had enough of their bs. Starting tomorrow my status is going back to "independent".


this guy is pure 100% sleaze.


This is his reward for helping throw the election in 2004 in Ohio.


what I was thinking.

He's one of their puppets.
