RNC Chairman’s Race, Round Four Goes To Priebus

Views

The fourth ballot has been counted in the RNC Chairman’s race, and we’re still stuck, with Priebus enjoying a modest, but by no means overwhelming lead.

The overall tally, in descending order:

Priebus: 58
Cino: 29
Steele: 28
Wagner: 28
Anuzis: 24
Anonymous Write-In: 1

Priebus enjoys a small, four vote gain. If somebody doesn’t drop out soon and endorse him, we’re in for a long night. Speculation is that Steele will throw his support to Wagner, which would put her in a dead heat with Priebus. Stay tuned.
