Dallas’s grandpa recently got some love from DC GOPe HQ:
The Republican National Committee (RNC) announced Robin Hayes will serve as Chairman of the State Chairmen, and RNC Co-Chair Bob Paduchik will serve as Chairman for the Presidential Nominating Process Committee.
Chairman of the chairmen? That sounds like that meaningless ‘milk monitor’ title they used to give the kids in kindergarten who always got picked last for kickball. An act of sympathy.

“I’m excited to announce the appointments of these two chairmen and the entire committee,” said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. “Robin has done a terrific job in North Carolina, and his exceptional qualifications will help us continue to grow and build our state parties. […]
Which part of the Hayes era at state party HQ does she consider “terrific”? The number of registered Republicans falling to third place behind Democrats and Unaffiliated?
