Krusty Konservative: Michael Steele to lead RNC

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative

The RNC election was a wild ride to say the least. The race say the lead changes between former Chair Mike Duncan who led after the first ballot, then Michael Steele lead after the 3rd, and Katon Dawson with the lead after the 4th. ... In reading the comment section some are quick to think that the election of Steele means the end of the Iowa Caucuses. I don't necessarily agree with that sentiment even though I'm worried. If Steele is a chairman who enforces the rules and doesn't allow any shenanigans from a few larger states wishing to crash our party we will be fine. ... As for Chairman Strawn, Steve Scheffler and Kim Lehman I don't think we can blame them for not supporting Steele. In Scheffler and Lehman's defense they backed the right conservative; their guy was only 8 votes away from victory. And even if they had backed Steele, there still would be questions about whether or not our First in the Nation status was in jeopardy or not. Strawn, Scheffler, and Lehman now must reach out and heal divisions that might now exist. Inviting Steele to the state might be a good first move. To be really honest with you, if Anuzis would have been the one that put Steele over the top I'd be more worried than I currently am.
