Members Choose Wisconsin State Chair to Lead Party into the 2012 Elections
January 14, 2011--After RNC General Counsel Norm Semanko (ID) explained the rules, voting started.

Round 1
RNC Secretary Sharon Day called the roll and members made their way to the front to vote.  (The ballot box is just visible in the middle of the above photo).

Results of the first ballot:

Priebus 45, Steele 44, Cino 32, Anuzis 24, Wagner 23.

Maria Cino did better than expected.  An amusing rumor had it that, "Priebus socked some votes into Maria and Ann and then will take them away [in the next round] to show a big bump."

Candidates and Campaigns: Steele, Wagner, Cino, Anuzis, Priebus.
Scenes around the Hall: a, b, c.
Voting: Round 1 | Round 2 | Round 3 | Round 4 | Round 5 | Round 6 | Round 7.
