Extending New Influence, FreedomWorks to Host RNC Candidates

More

FreedomWorks has worked hard to build up its influence in the Republican Party, working to seed and assist the Tea Party movement since early 2009, and, more recently, hosting its own new-member orientation for newly elected Republican lawmakers.

Next month Tomorrow, Dick Armey's group will take yet another step on the path toward GOP influence, holding a debate for candidates to chair the Republican National Committee on December 31 Wednesday. The debate will be broadcast online here. FreedomWorks staff will moderate.

Prominent candidates have confirmed they will attend; current Chairman Michael Steele, apparently, has not. Former Michigan GOP Chairman Saul Anuzis, Connecticut GOP Chairman Chris Healy, former Missouri RNC committee member Ann Wagner, and former Bush administration official Maria Cino have all confirmed that they will attend, according to FreedomWorks.

Post updated; original time was incorrect.
