Former Mo. GOP chair Wagner seeks RNC seat

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

WASHINGTON -- The former head of the Missouri GOP is running for chairwoman of the Republican National Committee.

In an online video addressed to RNC members, Ann Wagner joined the race on Monday to head the central committee.

In recent weeks she has called many of the 168 RNC members to weigh a bid to succeed current chairman Michael Steele, who has yet to say if he will seek another term.

Wagner said the GOP's central committee must become "efficient, relevant, professional and credible" as it seeks to challenge Democrats in 2012.

Wagner is a former RNC member and ambassador to Luxembourg under President George W. Bush.
