Fix Live at the RNC Election

The Republican National Committee is electing its chairman this morning and The Fix is in the room. Five candidates -- current chair Mike Duncan, former Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael Steele, South Carolina party chair Katon Dawson, Michigan party chair Saul Anuzis and former Ohio secretary of State Ken Blackwell -- are on the ballot.

And, unlike most things in politics these days, no one knows who is going to win.

We'll be tweeting from the room to keep Fixistas up to date on the goings-on.

    To answer your question, I assume this is a hash tag:

    #rncchair

    Sometimes Chris puts them in. But he is pretty excited so they are not showing up consistently.

    As I said, I don't think they relate to the Post website, but rather to Twitter itself.

    So what is a hash tag?

    Reading this on the Post website, I preferred it before you learned about the hash tags, which serve no purpose here and are a little irritating. But they aren't too much of a nuisance. Thanks for doing this. It is fascinating.

    Funny how "sentiment in the room" went from "Dawson's to lose" to "Steele will win" without missing a beat.

    whoa. Steele versus the guy from the all-white country club. couldn't get any better!

    I hope Steele wins for many reason, not the least of which is that if Dawson takes the chair the GOP will sink deeper into the "purely a southern party" caricature.

    Drop out Blackwell! Come on Steele! Type faster Cillizza!

    I'm bummed about Duncan. I liked the direction he'd been leading the GOP... I can't figure out why I'm reloading this page so often. I'm a Dem but this is fascinating...

    Thank you for doing this Chris. I can't get CSPAN and no other site is updating like you are. Keep up the great work and thank you for having and embracing the technology that lets us see/read the news as it is actually happening.

    "Where have you been on Blago? This is the political issue du jour and you've had nothing on its political implications."

    Perhaps there is a Gubernatorial Line for later in the day. Regarding Blago specifically, his evening press conference yesterday afternoon was likely his last. So the political question is how Gov Quinn will impact the next IL Gov's race.

    If the RNC continues to behave like it has in Congress, this will be like running for the band conductor on the Titanic.

    Chris,

    Where have you been on Blago? This is the political issue du jour and you've had nothing on its political implications.
