“I didn’t look at it as a pro-choice or a pro-life organization,” Cino said. “I have been committed for the last 20-some odd years to electing Republican women. Rightfully or wrongfully, I looked at it purely from a standpoint of electing Republican women.”

Uh, yeah, that's gonna be a problem. If you're electing a pro-abortion Republican (male or female), then you're not really electing a Republican.

RINOs need NOT apply.

I watched all their interviews and Wagner seems like the best candidate to me. She comes across well and has good conservative and organizational credentials. Reince Preibus, or whatever his name is up there in WI, seems competent enough, but he’s the Establishment’s guy—so I really don’t trust him in this role.

Reince Priebus is a strong supporter of Haley Barbour. His law firm, it was recently revealed, lobbied strongly for Obamacare.

Maria Cino is also establishment. She served in several positions in the Bush Administration and has close ties with Karl Rove, Ed Gillespie & Co. Cino is also a close friend of John Boehner.

Maria Cino takes steps toward run at RNC chairmanship

We really need to get away from the Party politic. Need to get back to electing as our leaders just/ righteous men (or women) who will rule in Fear of God and who understand their duty to men depends on their right relationship with their Creator.
A man who would lie ,steal or cheat his fellow man would have pretty much the same relationship with the God that Created him. And ANY politician who would defend Roe v.Wade/Doe v. Bolton -or Planned Parenthood is no different than those Southern Democrats and their Yankee peers that defended the Taney Court and the Dred Scott Decision.

I tell you, Wagner looks to me like the best of the bunch. Maybe not great, but the best of the alternatives. Did you watch those interview clips? I think she’d do well on the Sunday morning shows.

I forget the specifics now, but I understand that Sal is a weak conservative, go-along-to-get-along insider as well.

My problem with all these candidates trying to oust Steele are their ties to potential presidential candidates.

All of them have such ties, other than Steele. Wagner may be the most non-partisan but even she has ties to Bush. She was Bush's Ambassador to Luxembourg. It remains to be seen how non-partisan she would be.

Saul Anuzis is a strong supporter of Newt Gingrich.

The RNC Chairman needs to be impartial in the coming fight, and focus on fundraising and organization.

Steele may be better than a Romney/Barbour/Bush/Gingrich puppet, but he’s really not a very good solution either.

I agree with you on Steele, but he has been and pledges to remain impartial.

The insiders are out to get him. Although he certainly has brought a lot of problems on himself, I think he gets a bad rap on fundraising. The RNC did raise a record $192 million this cycle. How they spent that money is definitely open to criticism.

Steele is a complete disaster. He is a sworn enemy of conservatives, calling them “incendiary” and “ugly” He is financially corrupt, channeling millions of RNC money to his friends and family, He has been a failure at fund raising. He is a strong backer of amnesty for illegals. No conservative should give even the slightest thought to another term for Steele.

NO CINO!! She’s establishment to the gills. Don’t trust a Dick Cheney/Mary Matalin endorsement.

Matalin is married to Serpent Head. She is pro-choice and pro-homosexual marriage. She doesn’t care about a country that is aborting and divorcing and single-parenting and homosexualizing itself to death

Likewise, Cheney is great on national defense but really, really soft on social issues. He favored the repeal of DADT and doesn’t care about one million abortions a year. He just doesn’t care.

These women want power in order to put other women in power. That is the old quota system that the liberals invented.

Why are Republicans accepting these Feminist quota pushers and giving them power over us?

From the article:
“I didn’t look at it as a pro-choice or a pro-life organization,” Cino said. “I have been committed for the last 20-some odd years to electing Republican women. Rightfully or wrongfully, I looked at it purely from a standpoint of electing Republican women.”
Simple translation:

Party is more important than principle.

Conservatives really need to send this lady packing. This is the big problem with the Republican party as it exists today. It does not stand for any discernable principles. The TEA Party is trying to bring principles back to the party, but so far, the Republican party establishment has fought tooth and nail to avoid principles and stand for just political power for the party.

If this continues, look for TEA Partiers to try a third party soon, committed to real values and principles, and leaving the GOP to wither to nothing (which is exactly what they stand for).

I hope that the Republican party can be returned to a principled conservative platform, but this lady (and at least one other candidate for RNC chair, perhaps several) are real problems. These people will run off principled conservatives. Steele already ran a lot of them off, and the RCCC (supporting Scozzafava in 2009 as well as some other establishment candidates in 2010 against TEA Party favorites) has also tried to avoid the TEA Party influence.

It’s one thing to be personally pro-abort, but assisting a pro-abortion group in elections disqualifies her for the job IMHO.

Steele is an excellent selection. He presided over one of the greatest Republican electoral victories in the history of America!

Not a bad start eh.

Third parties don't work when you have single-member districts and first-past-the-post (winner take all) elections.

That's why you don't see third-parties littering the landscape ~ they get destroyed long before they become a serious problem.

Your choice is to take over the Democrats or become another Republican coalition partner.

NEXT! We're no longer interested in electing Republican women. We want to work to elect conservative women. I've this before, but I believe both the RNC and dnc are actually over and meaningless. I know I stopped giving to that Bozo Steele and gave only to conservatives. This is now a baby kissing and ribbon cutting position. Steele served a great purpose: He showed us we don't need the RNC to win. The donks saw they don't need the dnc to lose.
