Yep, Michael Steele.
Michael Steele Makes It Official: He Running To Stay At The RNC

Turns out the Steele is stronger than scandal. Embattled Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele will seek another two-year term, despite a first that was marked by gaffe after headline-grabbing gaffe. Politico has his official announcement, which you can read here.
A Steele reelection effort was all but a foregone conclusion until Sunday, when news of a private Steele conference call with the RNC’s 168 voting members led to speculation that Steele might decide against running, leaving a wide-open field of prospective replacements.
The arguments against Steele running fore reelection are many. Not only has Steele gone almost totally unmentioned by Republican leaders since his party’s huge victories on Nov. 2, he’s suffered a string of embarrassing leaks from inside the RNC that paint him as an ineffective manager and poor fundraiser.
Yet Steele, who laughs off most of these criticisms (and has for a while now) soldiers on.
This is just gonna have to be ugly.
This is for Steele’s GOP opponents..we here at JJP told you a long time ago about Steele:
