ed martinMissouri Republican Party Chairman Ed Martin attended last weekend’s RNC Winter meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina. On his return Chairman Martin stated: “I found the RNC meeting especially interesting and helpful when talking to other states’ chairs and asking for their best ideas and lessons learned.”  Ed went on to say that he offered Missouri as the host of the 2013 Midwestern Leadership Conference and our offer was accepted.  This means that, in early Fall of this year, we will welcome fellow RNC members and staffs to a two-day conference in Missouri.  It seems likely that this will take place in St. Louis but details remain to be finalized.  “This should be a great opportunity for Missouri to show her stuff to our neighbors as well as a chance for all of us to learn from each other.”

On a final note Ed stated: “We re-elected the RNC leadership team at this meeting.  They pledged to be more open and transparent and to give us a chance to review the Rules used to govern the RNC and its meetings.”
