Coleman Will Run for Top RNC Post, GOP Insiders Say

Tuesday, 19 Oct 2010 02:07 PM

Despite former Sen. Norm Coleman’s claims to the contrary, the Minnesota Republican is preparing a campaign for chairman of the Republican National Committee next year, Republican operatives tell Roll Call. And if he does decide to do it, Coleman, now CEO of American Action Network, will be elected easily to take over from Chairman Michael Steele, they say.


Norm Coleman, RNC, chairman, SteeleCandidates for the position won’t announce their campaigns until after the election, as Coleman and others don’t want to steal the limelight from Republican candidates. Still, “He’s running, absolutely,” one Republican operative says.


Steele most likely will try for re-election, but given his repeated gaffes and management problems at the RNC under his watch, he doesn’t stand much of a chance of repeating, most observers say.

After all the tumult Steele has brought to the position, many Republicans look forward to what they envision as a period of calm under Coleman. Republicans in Congress generally have warm feelings for him from his Senate tenure.
