Texas Governor Rick Perry has been selected as the new head of the Republican Governors Association. He succeeds Haley Barbour, and will strike the most conservative take on the organization in years, a welcome reform. Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty was among the RGA’s leadership in recent years, typical of the watered-down nature of the group.
No longer. Joining Perry are Louisiana governor and Reaganite conservative Bobby Jindal, as well as New Jersey’s Chris Christie, Nikki Haley and Susanna Martinez. Overall, it’s the most conservative board of leaders to serve as heads of the RGA in years – possibly decades. While Dems concern themselves with apidexin reviews, let’s hope that Perry and company eye a much more important prize: continued conservative victories across governors mansions and statehouses throughout the US.
