GOP Chair Steele Running For Re-Election

WASHINGTON - RNC Chairman Michael Steele has informed fellow committee members that he would run for a second term in the post. 

Following is a copy of the statement sent to fellow committee members:

 

CHAIRMAN MICHAEL STEELE STATEMENT TO RNC MEMBERS


I want to sincerely thank each of you for giving me the opportunity to work with all of

you over the past two years. I consider it a privilege and an honor.

Through your efforts, we have made historic contributions to the party and our country.

We have done this in a bold way. But as you each know, now the stakes are higher, the work

becomes harder and our commitment to complete the job—to ensure that Obama is a one term

President—becomes more important.

The 2009 – 2010 cycle allowed us to chart the course and succeed in a new political

environment.

This new political environment included challenges like President Obama’s stimulus

package, a democrat controlled congress, a bogus reform of our nation’s health care system, a

recession, a demoralized American public, and unfair federal election laws.

However, I hope each of you appreciate that while we began this cycle bowed, we ended

stronger, better and prouder.

Thanks to you and the American People, 2010 was a watershed year for Republicans and

our conservative limited government movement. We elected 63 new members to take control of

the House and 13 new Senators setting the stage for Senate control in 2012 and more than 690

new state legislators -- more than ever before.

We achieved that in part because we adhered to two important principles: consistency

and inclusion. Today members of the republican national committee govern themselves versus

being ruled by a small cliquish elite. Together, we have laid the ground game for—as you’ve

heard me say before—“turning the elephant” and now we must build the framework for winning

the White House.

Our goal is clear: 270 electoral votes in 2012!

We fired Pelosi so let’s increase our resources and strength to take back the senate, elect

new governors and a principled republican leader to serve as President of the United States.

United, we will make a difference for America’s future. You and i already know that.
