Dear Colleagues of the RNC:
I hope that this letter finds you healthy and happy in 2011.
The events that I have had the pleasure to observe this past week in Pennsylvania and in our nation’s capitol have created a fantastic foundation for my personal happiness and our nation’s health in the coming year.
Wow! What a feeling!
Next week, we have a very serious task at hand – the election of our next Chairman.
I take this responsibility very seriously.
After prolonged consideration, thought, and prayer, I have decided to make a public endorsement of the person who I believe is best qualified to lead our party in continuing our successes and in retaking the White House. That person is MARIA CINO.
Maria is a true conservative with over 30 years of experience in electing Republicans. She is a proven fundraiser, a proven grassroots organizer, and an experienced and trusted manager of people AND budgets. She has the experience in leading organizations as large and even larger than the RNC.
We need an individual who is ready to hit the ground running, has the work ethic to put in the time and energy to right our ship, and is willing to put herself aside to serve our party and our nation.
I am proud of the men and women who have stepped forward to run at this crucial time in our party’s history. We are a team, and darn good team, and Maria is the person to make us even better! Let’s go from good to GREAT!
As you prepare to come to Maryland next week, I respectfully ask that you think long and hard as to who is the right person for this time. I pray that you will support MARIA CINO for Chariman.
Christine J. Toretti
