They can pick Sen. Jane Cunningham, who is campaigning for the post by insisting she is a woman. Or how about Ed Martin, who lost to "Obama's attorney general" Chris Koster in November. Or they can stay the course with current chairman David Cole. From St. Louis Beacon:
Cunningham said that the Missouri Republican Party needs to “expand our tent,’’ adding that she believes that can be done while still holding firm to the party’s principles.
“The values in our platform are attractive to a lot of people,’’ she said.
Without criticizing Cole directly, Cunningham contended that she had the skills to better articulate conservative Republican values to the public, and to forge alliances with various conservative groups.
Cunningham pointed out that she also is a woman, which she said could help alleviate the anti-woman impression that some voters held of the Republican party, nationally and in Missouri.
