Anuzis Announces He Will Run For RNC Chairmanship

November 23, 2010 by  

Anuzis announces he will run for RNC chairmanshipRepublican National Committee (RNC) chairman Michael Steele has not yet decided if he'll run for re-election, but if he does, he'll have some competition.

Saul Anuzis, the former head of the Michigan Republican Party, recently announced in an email that he will run for RNC chairman, according to media reports. Anuzis, who was defeated by Steele two years ago, criticized the current chairman for thrusting himself into the limelight and bringing negative attention to the GOP.

Earlier this year, Steele released his book Right Now: A 12-Step Program for Defeating the Obama Agenda, in which he said the Republicans had "screwed up" for the most part since Ronald Reagan's presidency.

"My agenda is very straightforward. I have no interest in running for office. I won't be writing a book," Anuzis wrote in an email, quoted by The Associated Press.

The news provider reports that several candidates are considering a bid for the RNC chairmanship, which will be decided when voting members meet between Jan. 13-16.

According to FOX News, Senator Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) said he will not support Steele for another two-year term. DeMint, a champion of the Tea Party movement, said that Steele may have cost Republicans several Senate seats in the midterm elections because of inadequate organizational efforts.

    Good morning folks…

    I know that I am off subject but i have to let people know,,,,This should be headline news from every media in America..

    Ground Zero mosque developers apply for federal funding
    The developers of an Islamic community centre and mosque near Ground Zero in New York have applied for millions of dollars in public money from a post-September 11 reconstruction fund.

    The Park 51 group has risked reigniting a debate over its project by requesting the grant, which is reported to total $5 million (£3.1 million), from the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation

    ABS – anyone but Steele.

    Anyone who tried to explain away spending $1.60 for every $1 donated by wealthy contributors doesn’t have a sound enough understanding of basic math to fill this position.

    That’s in addition to his numerous gaffes. He’s an embarrassment.

    If you don’t like goodol boys club member, don’t support Anusia, check out who he all related to and influnces him. As for the mosque, how in the h-ll does a relegious organiztion get a federal grant, seperation of church and state. Like to see if The Church of the Wam Fuzzies can get grants from the feds. But damn I forgot it is just a leaning center for everyone and cukture place, it will get OKed for a go a head. Remember the marxist muslim moron is at the helm and gets what ever antiAmerica crap he says.

    I don’t know anything about Anuzis … but I don’t like Steele at all. So far all I’ve seen him do has hurt the GOP rather than helped it. We need someone who can help against the liberal/progressive pushes.

  • Warrior

    Hell, they may as well have Limbaugh run it.

  • chuckb

    warrior, rush would probably bring the party back to where it should be.
    not only get rid of steele, but run karl rove off as well.
