Amnesty supporter Mel Martinez to head Republican National Committee
Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.
Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.
If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.
Florida Senator Mel Martinez will be the new head of the Republican National Committee ("RNC"), sources say. He'll be continuing as a Senator, with the day-to-day operations handled by someone else.
Martinez is the co-sponsor of the Senate amnesty bill (2611), also called the "Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2006" or simply "Hagel-Martinez". In 2004, he opposed amnesty, now he's a strong supporter.
He's perfect for the Bush vision of the GOP, but abysmal for the U.S. Hopefully a third party will form that will offer an alternative, because this move makes the GOP even less attractive than they were before.
Of course, this move will probably come as a blow to another one of Bush's (presumed) top picks, and someone who - unlike Mel - will soon retire from his current position: Vicente Fox.
