Steele Withdraws from Reelection for RNC Chairman on 4th Ballot

Who Will Be the Next Republican Chair?Bookmark and Share   Republican National Committee Chairman Mike Steele has pulled out of his bid reelection to a second term as chairman. The move indicates that he knew he could garner enough delegates to win.

The process that elects a Republican National Committee Chairman usually consists of multiple counts until one candidate has a clear majority and in hammering that majority together, an intense deal making machine goes in to work. For his part in that process, after the fourth round of balloting Steele withdrew from the contest and threw his support behind Maria Cino. What deal was made, no one knows, but if Cino can hold on to all of Steele’s votes, she would be able to win on the fifth ballot

After the fourth ballot, the count stood at; Wisconsin Republican Party Chairman Reince Preibus had 58 votes to Former Deputy RNC Chairman Maria Cino’s 29, Michael Steele’s 28, former RNC Co-Chairman Ann Wagner’s 28 and Former Michigan Republican Chairman Saul Anuzis’ 24.
