Maria Cino for RNC Chair?

On Tuesday, 3BP was hoping for Ed Gillespie to submit his name for consideration as RNC Chairman. But since then a new name has come up.

Maria Cino.

And she’d be a fantastic candidate.

“Who?”, you say.

Cino is probably one of the biggest names you’ve never heard of. Here’s a bit of background:

Cino served as deputy secretary of the Department of Transportation under President George W. Bush and went on to become CEO of the 2008 Republican convention in St. Paul, Minn. She was also political director for Bush’s 2000 presidential campaign. Along the way, she became a friend of soon-to-be House Speaker John Boehner and confidante of numerous party leaders.

To put it plainly, she fits what we need in a Chairman to a tee.

She’s smart and more importantly, effective.

Her record of success is hard to top and she’d be a very well-respected name among big money donors who need to be on board with the new Chairman.

Another name floating around out there, but not nearly as likely to enter the race, is Nick Ayers, the man who served as executive director of the RGA during this past cycle. As we all know by now, the RGA helped save the butts of Republicans hoping for a wave this past cycle. He’d be another solid pick, but without anywhere near the level of experience level of Cino.
