Former Vice President Dick Cheney will be hosting an upcoming fundraiser for Mary Cino, who appears to be prepping for a bid to chair the Republican National Committee. It makes sense he’d be hosting an event for her—she is a former Bush Administration official and longtime Republican Party insider.
The most current item on her resume, though, is a bit more interesting. For the past two years, Cino has worked as a lobbyist for Pfizer, which has spent more than $35 million on lobbying Congress in the past two years alone.
I don't know what her chances are and she's definitely not the only candidate vying for the position, but placing a lobbyist at the helm of your party seems a little more like “business as usual” than all that “change” GOP candidates promised on the stump in 2010.
