Ada Fisher, the Republican national committeewoman from North Carolina, plans to back Maria Cino for chair of the RNC. In an e-mail to National Review Online, Fisher writes:
I do not believe in candidate endorsements. I have notified the Central Committee and Executive Committee of the state GOP as of 12-27-2010 that I plan to vote for Maria Cino barring some unexpected craziness given all the other drama we as a national party have experience[d]. Both of the women [Cino and Ann Wagner] are the most qualified in this race and I will not vote for Steele or his Lt Anuzis, Collins and Gentry who put us in precarious positions.
