Wadhams pleads case for reelection as Colorado GOP chairman

Dick Wadhams announced Tuesday that he will run for a third term as Colorado Republican Party chairman.

Hotline: Wadhams backing Anuzis in RNC chairman race

In the race to elect the next Republican National Committee Chairman, Colorado GOP leader Dick Wadhams has reportedly thrown his support behind Saul Anuzis, who was state party chairman in Michigan from 2005 to 2009.

Looking to settle score, GOP seizes on Reid gaffe

Moments before midnight on Friday, Marc Ambinder blogged at The Atlantic about some of the “juiciest revelations” in “Game Change,” a behind-the-scenes book on the 2008 presidential campaign by journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann. According to the authors, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) was bullish on Barack Obama’s chances at becoming the first African-American president because he was “light-skinned” and had “no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”
