David Bossie, a distinguished national conservative activist and the President and Chairman of the advocacy group Citizens United, is mounting a bid to become Maryland’s next Republican National Committeeman.
Each state has one Republican National Committeeman and Committeewoman who represent their respective state’s Republican Party to the Republican National Committee (RNC). National Committeemen and Committeewomen vote on issues that decide the future of the national Republican Party.
Bossie’s biography is listed on Citizens United’s website here. An impressive conservative activist, coupled with his prominent role at Citizens United, Bossie is considered a rising conservative star both in Maryland and nationally.
Bossie will face longtime Maryland National Committeeman Louis Pope in a National Committeeman contest. (I don’t expect any other Maryland Republican men to jump into the race.)
Elected Republican Central committee members from each of Maryland’s twenty-three counties and Baltimore City will vote for a National Republican Committeeman and Committeewoman at the Maryland Republican Party’s upcoming spring convention in Annapolis, slated for May 13 and 14 at the DoubleTree Annapolis Hotel.
I expect Bossie to pose a formidable and onerous challenge to Louis Pope. If elected, Bossie would serve together with Maryland’s Republican National Committeewoman Nicolee Ambrose. Ambrose will likely glide to reelection without any inner-party opposition.
Bossie lives in Ashton (Montgomery County) with his wife and four children.
