A friend brought to my attention this morning that Dick Wadhams is not going to seek reelection as Colorado GOP chairman. This is positive news for anyone betting on John Thune running (and winning) in 2012.
Wadhams was instrumental in John Thune's historic 2004 defeat of Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle. He has previously worked on campaigns in South Dakota, Colorado, Montana, and Virginia.
This news is so unexpected the Colorado Democratic Speaker of the House tweeted that he was "speechless".
Maybe Mr. Wadhams is resigning to work on one more campaign: John Thune for President.
