WASHINGTON--On Friday night I wrote a post about national GOP pundits based here rallying support for Illinois Republican Party Chairman Pat Brady the day before a vote to oust him had been scheduled. Late Friday night came word the Saturday meeting has been canceled.

To: Illinois Republican State Central Committee
Subject: Rescheduling of March 9, 2013 State Central Committee Meeting

Dear GOP Leaders:

The March 9, 2013 State Central Committee Meeting is being rescheduled because the State Chairman has not responded to our request that he be present in person or by telephone for the meeting. Details about the new date, time and location of this meeting will be sent out to all of you once they are finalized. We are sorry for the late notice but we wanted to give the Chairman every opportunity to respond to our request that he be present in person or by telephone at this meeting.
