A prominent Michigan Republican is running against party chairman Michael Steele.

Saul Anuzis made his plans known Friday in an e-mail in which he says the party can win in 2012 only if the chairman steps out of the limelight and allows the candidates to become the voice and face of Republicans.

Anuzis also says Republicans will need to rebuild trust with major donors who abandoned the party in 2010 and supported outside political organizations instead. Steele has not said whether he will seek re-election to a new two-year term in January.

Anuzis is the former head of the Michigan Republican Party. He ran a losing race for the national chairmanship two years ago.
