Michael Steele: On His Way Out as Republican Party Chair?
(Christian Science Monitor) — From the start, Michael Steele was not only a historical figure in the Republican Party but a controversial one as well. Now he may be on the way out. Steele, chairman of the Republican National Committee, is expected to announce his intentions about running for reelection to the top party post Monday evening. Several sources are reporting that he is expected to step down when his two-year term ends in January. “Steele … has built no known reelection team or structure, making a campaign unlikely in the face of competition that grows fiercer by the day,” reports Politico.com. “Key supporters expect him to drop out of the hotly contested race.”
