Jim Geraghty, live-blogging the RNC officers' elections:
Another reporter notes that the RNC has to be out of the ballroom by 5 p.m. because a wedding is slated to use the room starting at 5:30. Besides the RNC Chair, the RNC has to elect several other positions, including co-chair, secretary, and treasurer.
Every con-runner's been in that position. It's just a hell of a lot more... prosaic and small-time than anything you'd associate with the guys running one of the two national political parties.
