Countering a jab from his successor, former RNC Chairman MichaelSteele tore into Reince Priebus on Monday, saying he had failed to effectively lead the party last year and that the GOP had “no message” and “no focus.” “I won. And he didn’t,” Steele said on MSNBC, noting New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Virginia...
MichaelSteele’s election as chairman of the Republican National Committee puts him in an unusual position: an African-American leading a political party that traditionally has received precious little support from blacks. Only 4 percent of blacks voted for the GOP candidate, John McCain, in November’s election; 95 percent went for a guy named Obama. And more than personal affinity was at play: Democrats have won at least 83 percent of African-American voters in every presidential election since 1976. Blacks are far and away the party’s most loyal backers. Indeed 90 percent of McCain’s voters were whites (compared with 61 percent…

The catfight between former Republican National Committee Chairman MichaelSteele and his replacement, Reince Priebus, has reached screech level, with Steele belittling the party's new focus on minorities as old news.
Appearing on the Andrea Tantaros Show, a nationally syndicated radio show, Steele said the GOP's $10 million minority outreach effort ignored his plan instituted four years ago and was the latest example of a bloated party apparatus.
Steele also sounded ready to beat up Priebus. Asked by Tantaros who would win in a cage fight, Steele said, Oh, no question, I would clean his clock. How? Just one knock on the head. It's done.
The Steele-Priebus battle is, in a way, a repeat of their 2011 duel for the RNC chairmanship. Steele didn't have the votes and pulled out, clearing the way for Priebus, a former Wisconsin Republican Party chairman.
MichaelSteele, former Republican National Committee chairman, is hitting back at Reince Priebus, the current RNC chairman, on Monday after he took a jab at Steele for leaving him with a broken and bankrupt Republican Party in 2011. Steele fired back at Priebus by noting that he won the elections he was charged with winning whereas Priebus failed in that task.
TAMPA — Republicans gathered at the University Club in downtown Tampa Saturday night to honor GOP chairman Reince Priebus. The event was sponsored by the Wisconsin delegation, which of course represents Priebus’ home state, and the Mississippi delegation, home of former governor and former RNC chairman Haley Barbour. There were several major players there: Priebus himself, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Sen. Ron Johnson, Barbour and nephew Henry Barbour, former Virginia governor and former RNC chair Jim Gilmore, former chair Mike Duncan, and others.
With the presence of Priebus, Barbour, Gilmore, and Duncan, the event featured the current and three former chairmen of the party. But there was one very recent chairman who was nowhere to be found, and whose name didn’t come up: MichaelSteele.
Steele was chairman when the party selected Tampa as the site of its 2012 convention. Steele was chairman when the GOP came roaring back after defeats in 2006 and 2008 to pick up 63 seats to gain control of the House in 2010, and also to gain six seats to greatly strengthen its position in the Senate. In addition, during Steele’s time in office, Republicans won key governorships in New Jersey and Virginia.
