RNC committee person not named Goat Killer quits post abruptly

Fri Jan 31, 2014 at 19:15:04 PM EST

Last week, when every major Republican called for Goat Killer to quit his RNC post, there were rumors circulating that he'd agree to step down if given enough lag time so as not to appear to have been forced out. Exactly a week later, an RNC committee person from Michigan quit that job. From Gongwer.

Republican senatorial candidate Terri Land has resigned from her post as Michigan’s Republican National Committeewoman, the Michigan Republican Party announced this evening.

There had been no general announcement by the Land campaign, but Bobby Schostak, the Michigan Republican Party chair, issued a statement expressing sadness that Ms. Land had resigned.

“We thank Terri Lynn Land for her service as National Committeewoman, and while we are saddened to receive this news, we understand and support her decision,” Mr. Schostak said. “Terri Lynn Land is a strong candidate, and more importantly the best person to represent Michigan in the U.S. Senate.”

Well, we know that last sentence is a lie. We know that Terri Lynn Land is essentially the Republican equivalent of "some guy," because the top tier Republicans all skipped the race. But, whatever.

This is weird as hell.  Is there a scandal coming?  Why in the world would see quit the RNC so abruptly?

Maybe she's rage-quitting
If so, this is her way of cutting off association with Agema.  "If he won't quit, I will."

Greetings from Detroit, Ground Zero of the post-industrial future!

Probably time
Anyone that's been around a few campaigns knows that there's one thing more valuable than money. Time. Candidates don't have much of it and RNC committeewoman is a position that takes a bit of time that US Senate candidates can use elsewhere.

If I'm Land, I'd rather be spending that otherwise RNC time in Michigan than out of state.
