RNC Members Consider Resolution On Steele's Book

More

Michael Steele's new book has irked some in his party--or, more accurately, his promotion of it has. Steele didn't tell staffers or congressional leaders until December that "Right Now: A 12-Step Program for Defeating the Obama Agenda" was about to be published, and he uses his title as RNC chairman on the cover, though profits go directly to him. And he's promoting it as the GOP gears up for a competitive election year, one in which they have a chance to make gains in both chambers of Congress.

Now, those irked partisans may voice their displeasure in a party resolution asking Steele to set aside is book-promotion tour to focus on his job as chairman, Hotline OnCall's Reid Wilson reports. RNC committeemen have been discussing the possibility, though no plans have been finalized; the RNC will convene in Hawaii later this month.
