Haley Barbour Takes Over RGA
The Republican Governors Association just announced that Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour — already “in line” to take the chairmanship of the RGA — has assumed it.
” As a former RNC chairman and one of the best governors in the country, no one is better positioned to takeover as RGA chairman than Governor Barbour,” executive director Nick Ayers said in a statement.
Barbour is also a 2012 contender who sees the virtue of keeping his profile, for now, comfortably low, and one of the best-respected political minds in the Republican Party.
That didn’t take long.
