Blackballed from the Beginning

The other day, the Hotline had an item speculating about the significance of Ohio Republican Party Chairman Robert T. Bennett endorsing current Republican National Committee Chairman Mike Duncan over fellow Ohioan Ken Blackwell. They shouldn’t have wondered. Neither Bennett nor outgoing RNC Co-Chair Jo Ann Davidson are known for being Blackwell fans. And of course Bennett played a role in pushing Blackwell out of the 1998 gubernatorial race in favor of Bob Taft.

Bennett wrote in his letter endorsing Duncan: “As the longest-serving state chairman on the Republican National Committee, I have personally witnessed many of our successes and failures. … I have seen what works and what doesn’t…”  All true. I’ll leave it to the reader to decide which category the Taft coronation falls into.
