Updating The RNC Chairman's Race Whip Count

Updated with new names, 10:14 a.m., December 29

More than one-third of Republican National Committee members have declared their support for one of the six contenders seeking the chairmanship, and with just over two weeks to go the race remains wide open.

So far, at least 70 committee members have publicly said they back a candidate. We consider an endorsement either a comment in a publication or a release from a candidate's campaign. Missing any names? Email us and let us know.
