According to Politico, Norm Coleman has begun talking to high-level Republicans about a bid to become RNC Chairman when Michael Steele’s term is up in January. Asked about this possibility on CNN on Friday, Coleman didn’t deny interest, but said he was focused on the elections this November. Currently, Coleman heads a conservative group called the American Action Network which, says Politico, has helped fill the fundraising void left by the national party’s cash shortage.
Coleman did take a fully deserved shot at Steele’s leadership of the RNC. “The reality is that there have been concerns about the RNC,” he said. “Fundraising hasn’t been what a lot of folks would like.”
I think it goes without saying that the RNC would take a huge step forward if Coleman were to replace Steele.
