Morton Blackwell, an RNC committeeman from Virginia and head of the conservative Leadership Institute, has thrown his support to Saul Anuzis in the race for the Republican National Committee chairmanship. Blackwell writes in a letter to fellow RNC members:
Saul has excellent relationships across the country with social, economic and foreign policy conservatives. He worked successfully with Tea Party activists in Michigan who became a vital part of the winning coalition. He will build this same coalition nationally. Saul will provide the essential leadership to run and manage the RNC and put together a winning team and game plan to facilitate our wins in 2012.
