Breaking news: Wisconsin party chief leads balloting for GOP head
OXON HILL, Md. — Wisconsin GOP Chairman Reince Priebus is leaping ahead in balloting to become the next head of the Republican National Committee.
He leads the shrunken field with 67 votes after five rounds of balloting. GOP operative Maria Cino won the endorsement of current Chairman Michael Steele after he dropped out of the race. But she got only 40 votes the next time around.
Saul Anuzis got 32. And Ann Wagner trailed with 28.
The winner will serve for the next two years.
