Maryland’s former lieutenant governor Michael Steele announced yesterday at the Republican Governor’s Association meeting in Miami that he is running for Republican National Committee Chairman. He expressed interest in the job four years ago, but he’s getting a lot more buzz this time from the likes of Sean Hannity. He sent out a statement last night laying out his platform for the job:
Steele is going for it, like I said a couple ays ago. We didn’t hear much about it with Palin getting all the press.
“the Republican Party must present a vision for the future of America that relies on our conservative values and core principles. It is wrong to believe the voters have suddenly become liberal. They have just lost any sense of confidence that the Republican Party holds the answers to their problems. We must face the fact that our party has failed in recent years to live up to our own principles — we have failed to be ‘solutions oriented’ in addressing the concerns of all Americans.”
