Several contenders have joined in the campaign to become the next chairperson of the Republican National Committee (RNC); one of the candidates, Ann Wagner, joins Newsmakers to explain how her qualifications set her apart from the others who are vying for the position.
Wagner asserts that she knows how to win elections, pointing to her success in chairing Rep. Roy Blunt’s (R-MO) victorious campaign for the U.S. Senate seat in the 2010 mid-term elections. During her tenure as co-chairperson of the RNC and as head of the RNC in Missouri, the Party saw also significant gains in federal and state elections.
Wagner went on to highlight her work in getting the Missouri chapter out of debt, and how the experience will help her address the financial problems plaguing the national committee. Before the election on January 14, she and the other five candidates, including Chairman Steele, will participate in the “2011 RNC Chairman's Debate” tomorrow at the National Press Club.
