RNC Round Three: Steele Leading

Maryland's Michael Steele: 51
Kentucky incumbent Mike Duncan: 44
South Carolina: Katon Dawson: 34
Michigan's Saul Anuzis: 24
Ohio's Ken Blackwell: 15
Typical of the mood in the room, as related by correspondent Will DiNovi, is what Joe Trillo, a national committeeman from Rhode Island, had to say:  "It's a diverse party. We're tired of being labeled as white supremacists."

Maine GOP chair Mark Ellis says he's still supporting Duncan, owing to Duncan's proven ability as a manager and a fundraiser.
