The Right Stuff takes a provisional holiday; back April 28

Tom Jackson The Right Stuff is, officially, taking a spring holiday (beginning with a whirlwind visit to London, which is why I’ve applied the British variation of “vacation”) through April 27. But that doesn’t mean it absolutely, positively won’t weigh in on occasion if the moment, issue or happenstance presents itself. No matter what, however, all-new episodes of TRS insights episodes are scheduled to resume April 28.

RNC Host Committee “met every milestone”

RNC Host Committee CEO Ken Jones says his group has kept pace with the demands placed on it by the convention schedule. But he refused to go into any more detail about the group’s progress toward its goal of raising $50 million.
“We’ve met every milestone we had to meet,” Jones told a press conference Tuesday morning at Tropicana Field. “We did successfully enough in fundraising that the convention will happen.”
Jones said the full report of the committee’s fundraising will be filed with the Federal Elections Commission in mid-October.
The committee “probably will not” continue to raise money after the convention ends Aug. 30, Jones said.
