Senator John Thune (R-S.D.) was elected to serve as chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee after John Ensign (R-NV) stepped down last week.
Real Republican Ally Senator Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) was chosen to take Senator Thune’s seat as vice chairman of the Senate GOP conference. The Real Republican Majority feels that this is a definite first step in the right direction for the GOP.
After the 2008 election defeat, the GOP has finally realized that common sense wins elections, not extremism. RMC, has always supported candidates with a message of inclusiveness and moderation and is proud that Senator Murkowski is moving up within the Party. RMC is hoping that with your help and our allies, like Senator Murkowski, we can return the GOP to its original big tent philosophy by supporting and electing common sense Republicans.
