Michael Steele: ‘I Was Ready to Battle Democrats, Not Battle My Own’
(The Grio) — Michael Steele, now the former chairmen of the Republican National Committee, sat down with theGrio’s Mara Schiavocampo this week. Just a few months after the Republicans retook control of the House, Steele was pushed out of power by his own party and replaced by Reince Priebus. Making light of the situation, Steele has made his rounds on the media circuit, even appearing on The Daily Showto square off with a puppet version of himself. Steele sat down with Schiavocampo to talk about his legacy as RNCchair, his relationship (or lack thereof) with President Obama, and who’s to blame for the financial woes of the party.
