Current Republican National Committee Chairman Robert "Mike" Duncan says the technology pay-off that helped Saxby Chambliss win proves why he should be able to keep his job.

Duncan wrote an op-ed in the Politico today titled "RNC Chair Discloses Comeback Plan" that said,
"The ground game that reelected Sen. Chambliss focused on the nuts-and-bolts of campaigning, enhanced by investments in technology that the RNC has made over the past two years. The Chambliss team, the Georgia Republican Party, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and the RNC were full partners in a Victory plan that executed the basics flawlessly. With dozens of RNC staff and hundreds of volunteers in 11 regional Victory offices across the state, our team contacted nearly a half-million Georgians in the last five days alone."
This is, of course, good news. But should the RNC Chairman really be trumpeting the fact he was able to secure a win in the ruby red Georgia? Shouldn't that be a given?
