Boehner Backs Maria Cino

House Speaker John Boehner is backing Maria Cino for RNC Chair, according to the Daily Caller. I've previously written about how much I think of Maria. She'd make a fabulous RNC Chair. So at first I was delighted to hear that Boehner was calling national committee members to support her.

And then I remembered Kentucky's U.S. Senate primary.

Here's hoping that Boehner's endorsement does not boomerang -- like Mitch McConnell's endorsement of Trey Grayson did in his primary against Rand Paul. A few Tea Partiers are criticizing Maria as too much of an insider. Republicans need to keep in mind that people like Maria -- or Trey Grayson -- can work tirelessly for the party and still retain their conservative principles.
