Fonalledas Supports Wagner

Zori Fonalledas, the Republican national committeewoman from Puerto Rico, has endorsed Ann Wagner for chair of the RNC. National Journal’s Reid Wilson underlines the significance of Fonalledas’s backing: “In 2009, Fortuno, Fonalledas and the 16 other delegates from Hawaii and the nation’s island territories voted en masse for Steele, giving him a big group of supporters that proved overwhelming.

Fonalledas’s endorsement brings Wagner’s total to 15 votes, pulling her ahead of Saul Anuzis. That said, Anuzis has been hinting he has another endorsement up his sleeve — he needs at least one more to be nominated. Read more here.
