Georgia RNC Member Appointed to Party's Budget Committee

It's no secret that the Republican National Committee (RNC) is struggling financially. Despite the Republican Party's massive gains in the 2010 mid-term elections, the RNC is more than $20 million in debt [Elliott, Philip (2011-1-31). RNC Debt At $23 Million As It Gears Up For 2012. The Huffington Post. Retrieved on 2011-2-3.].

Wednesday, newly elected Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus continued working towards getting the national GOP's financial house in order, naming the members of the RNC budget committee.

Georgia RNC member Linda Herren was among those appointed to the committee by Priebus.

"As the RNC looks to build a top-notch operation to beat the Democrats in 2012, I am pleased to announce that former Governor Bob List of Nevada will serve as Chairman of the RNC Budget Committee along with new appointments Rob Gleason of Pennsylvania and Susie Hudson of Vermont," Priebus said. "Governor List and the team understand what it will take to run an efficient and effective RNC to reclaim the White House from President Barack Obama.

"Together we will tighten our belt and make the necessary changes to ensure that we have the resources to build on our successes in 2010 and continue to elect Republicans across the country. I look forward to working with Governor List and the rest of the RNC Budget Committee in this important election cycle for our country and our Party."
