Chip Saltsman for RNC Chairman

Back to the Basics

Who is Chip Saltsman?

I wanted to post some profiles done on Chip over the years just to give some of y’all a better idea of exactly who he is, and more importantly, exactly what he stands for.

Click here to read a profile, in The Wall Street Journal, on Mr. Saltsman’s work managing the Huckabee campaign. Quote of interest:

Mr. Saltsman’s campaign strategy has defied expectations. He got his candidate this far partly by watching every cent.

It’s time we return leadership to the GOP that understands fiscal responsibility, and has practiced it. Mr. Saltsman exhibited this through and through via his handling of the Huckabee campaign and how far he stretched that budget.

Click here for a profile on Chip in The Memphis Daily News. Key quote:

Saltsman does believe his party has been sidetracked from its core philosophy. He repeats a phrase used by McCain often on the campaign trail – that Republicans ‘came to Washington to change it, but it changed us.’


A few more key quotes from Mr. Saltsman:

The Republican Party has to get back to the basics and reinvest in the state party structures.

Could not have said it better myself.

One of the things I’d like to think I’m known for is that whether I was party chairman or working for Bill Frist or just freelancing some other campaigns—we’re going to have a good time. It’s a very important job. We’re obviously very serious about it. We work very hard. But we’re having fun…

We have lost this attitude in our party over the last few years. We need the optimism Mr. Saltsman brings to whatever project he is working on.
