Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) says he’d like to see changes at the Republican National Committee, but he stopped short of explicitly calling for a new chairman.
McDonnell, appearing on MSNBC from the Republican Governors Association conference in California, said he’s troubled by many of the problems raised by other prominent Republicans.
“Many of us have great concern about the fiscal state at the RNC,” McDonnell said.He made sure to point out that current RNC Chairman Michael Steele was “very helpful” to McDonnell’s campaign last year. Steele joined the GOP ticket for a whirlwind tour of the Commonwealth in the closing days of the race.
But, he seemed to indicate he’s supportive of a change. McDonnell said he was going to talk about the issue with Virginia’s delegates to the party’s central committee.
“There is broad concern about what we can do to make our party more effective.”
