Michael Steele On Running For RNC Chair Again: ‘It’s Not A Bad Idea’

Former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele may want his old job back. During an interview with C-SPAN on Thursday, he floated the idea of running for the position again.

“It’s not a bad idea,” Steele replied when asked if he’s interested in running for chairman again. “I can go shake up the House a little bit more, what do you think?

“Are you serious?” the host asked.

“We’ll see,” Steele said.

Asked when he would announce, Steele replied, “Oh, I’ve got time for that.”

Steele was also asked to respond to a recent POLITICO report that Reince Priebus, the current RNC chair, will likely seek a second term. He declined to say whether Priebus should stay on, noting, “That’s gonna be something the members have to decide.”

Steele was chairman from 2009 to 2011 — a tenure that he defended during the interview.
