I wrote previously on Tom’s boost for his bid to become the next Chairman of the Republican Study Committee in the US House by gaining the support of former RSC leadership. There will be a vote on November 14th to elect a new RSC leader. Daniel Horowitz over at our sister blog RedState has a good write up of why Congressman Tom Graves needs to be the next RSC chairman.
