State Chair Race in Brief
For months it has seemed as if Chairman Hoffman had the votes. But following a fireworks filled final state central committee meeting, the winds have begun to change. Now it seems to be a toss-up between Hoffman and Dix with a handful of inside folks telling us they think that Dix in fact has the votes.
The Presidential implications here are pretty minimal. Dix former campaign staff works with McCain, but most of his chief allies in the State Central Committee are unaffliated. Dix also has a close working relationship with Statehouse folks loyal to Christopher Rants who's endorsed Romney.
Hoffman on the otherhand doesn't have any Presidential leanings to speak of, unless he's been extremely successful at keeping them under the radar. So unless he plans to appoint a grossly one-sided ED, it would seem that they would be a neutral administration.
The vote comes on Saturday and we'll have the results for you here over the weekend.
