Mike Duncan has abandoned his bid for another term as Republican Party chairman.
Duncan made the move after failing to get a majority of Republican National Committee members’ votes after three rounds of balloting.
The Kentucky Republican said Friday: “Obviously the winds of change are blowing at the RNC.”
Duncan thanked Bush, and got a standing ovation when he withdrew.
He said of his two-year tenure: “It truly has been the highlight of my life.”
With the present state of the National Republican party, being Chairman has to be a thankless job right now. Anyone want the job?
