On Friday, your blogger enjoyed communicating with North Carolina GOP National Committeeman, Rep. David Lewis (R-Harnett), immediately after the election of our new RNC chairman, former Maryland Lt. Governor Michael Steele:
He texted KCC the following statement:
"Michael will be an effective communicator and strong guiding hand in developing and implementing a 50 state winning strategy. I'm excited."
UPDATE: 10:15 a.m. EST NCGOP chairman, Linda Daves issued the following statement regarding Steele's election:
“I would like to personally congratulate Michael Steele on his historic accomplishment. North Carolina Republicans can be proud to be represented by a man of integrity and vision as our new RNC Chairman. The NCGOP will work closely with Chairman Steele and the RNC to renew our party in North Carolina. We will restore the party of Lincoln by building from the bottom up and reinvigorating our grassroots. As we rebuild the GOP, we will continue to stand on the foundation of conservative principles, continue to advocate for freedom, and continue to stand up for the values that Republicans hold most dear.”
