Asks supporters to support RINO Obamacare lobbyist Maria Cino.
FYI – Cino has been an active supporter and donor to a pro-abortion group.
That will go over well with the base.
Thank you, Michael Steele.

Totals for Round 6: Priebus 80 Anuzi 37 Cino 34 Wagner 17
Bummer. It looks like my friend Ann Wagner, a true conservative despite those horrible immigration rumors, is done. If Reince “Lets execute Obama” Priebus wins, the RNC is in big trouble.
Ann Wagner drops. So sad. We do love her in Missouri.
3 candidates left
One RINO CINO- an Obamacare lobbyist and “former” abortion supporter
One Who is Steele-lite.
One who is conservative choice- Anuzi.
The speaker just sent everyone to break again and then realized they had to count the votes first.
Reince “Let’s Execute Obama” Priebus Wins!
Nice work, RNC.
