Re-working the Republican Leadership Council

Just got this message from Christie Todd Whitman:

Dear Member,

Since you are an important part of our team, I wanted you to be the first to hear about a new development for It’s My Party Too.

Since the 2006 midterm elections, many people have asked how we can get the Republican Party back on track in future elections. With that in mind, today we are embarking on an exciting new phase for It’s My Party Too (IMP-PAC).

I have recruited former Senator John Danforth of Missouri and former Lieutenant Governor Michael Steele of Maryland, and the three of us are reenergizing the Republican Leadership Council. Former Governor Tom Ridge of Pennsylvania will be joining our Board of Directors.

It has been a few years since the Republican Leadership Council (RLC) has been active in federal, state, and local politics, but by merging with IMP-PAC and with the support of our grassroots activists like you, this organization will be a powerful force working to return the Republican Party to its foundational principles.

For members of IMP-PAC like you, rest assured that our goals remain the same and our commitment to centrist Republican candidates endures. Additionally, you will automatically be signed up as an RLC member, so you will continue to receive important updates. The critical difference that will result from this combination is that we will now have double the energy, resources, and impact!

I know I speak for Senator Danforth, Governor Ridge, and Lieutenant Governor Steele when I thank you for all of your hard work on behalf of the Republican Party. Our work is far from over – and now as the Republican Leadership Council, the work is just beginning. I look forward to seeing you on the campaign trail!


Governor Christie Whitman

I wish them the best of luck....
