Steele for RNC Chairmanship?

Posted by David Keelan on Friday, November 10, 2006

Following up on David Wissings post

The Washington Times reports on Michael Steele:

Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman, whose party just lost both chambers of Congress, will leave his position in January, and the post as party chief has been offered to Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele.

In addition The Washington Times also reports that Maryland GOP Chairman John Kane will keep his committment to only serve four years in his current position.

Among the potential candidates to be the new MDGOP leader is Louis Pope.  Louis served as the Howard County GOP Chairman for a number of years and is now Maryland’s representative to the RNC.

Mr. Kane had said he would serve a single four-year term when he took the job in 2003. Results from the election Tuesday likely reinforce his decision to leave.

Party insiders have mentioned as successors Republican National Committee member Louis M. Pope, a Howard County real estate agent, and state Republican Party counsel Dirk Haire, an Anne Arundel County lawyer.

I don’t know Dirk Haire, but I do know Louis Pope.  I think Louis would be an ideal choice.
