Romney, RNC Move To Coordinate Efforts

This is a good sign, given the rocky relationship that existed between the McCain campaign and the RNC in 2008. The Washington Post's Chris Cillizza reports:

Less than 24 hours after sweeping five primaries and declaring the Republican presidential nomination fight officially over, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee are moving quickly to coordinate their efforts.

Those familiar with the moves emphasized that they were not a takeover of the RNC by the Romney campaign — as has happened in past elections when the identity of the nominee became clear — but rather an integration designed to maximize the effectiveness of the two organizations.

The fact that Priebus will remain as chairman — and that no new deputy chair will be named — is a vote of confidence in the Wisconsin Republican, who took over a financially moribund committee in the early days of 2011.
