The Republican National Committee has found someone to do what could be an intensely challenging job in July: serve as chair of the Rules Committee at the party's convention in Cleveland.

Former Utah Congresswoman Enid Mickelsen will oversee the committee that's responsible for reviewing and modifying the party's rules for the convention and the party's operations going forward. The panel includes 112 members, two coming from each state and territory.
