Steele to face no-confidence vote?

I don’t know how reliable the source is, but All Headline News is reporting Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele as early as the end of this month:

Political Wire, citing GOP insiders, says a no confidence vote will likely be held after the election whether or not the Republican nominee, New York State Assembly Minority Leader Jim Tedisco, wins over Democratic businessman Scott Murphy. It also says Dawson “is said to be quietly organizing a vote and is getting the support of several state party chairmen who want to dump Steele.”

Though Steele has only held his position as RNC chairman for roughly six weeks, he’s faced criticism for critical comments he made about Rush Limbaugh, as well as his later apology to Limbaugh. Steele has also faced calls to resign, so it will be interesting to see how things play out in the RNC.

  1. This seems to me to be coming from Social Conservatives. Steele needs to stand up to them. If he weathers this storm, the party will benefit greatly.

    Social Conservatives need to learn to play well with others, be inclusive, and not appear so darned intolerant. A battle tested Steele could make some headway in that regard.

    But I could be wrong. I often am.

  2. Rich, you’re absolutely right about Steele standing up to social conservatives within the GOP. If he can do that while in the process wooing moderates to make the GOP truly a big tent party, then he might actually be on to something.
