Henry Barbour, nephew of Gov. Haley Barbour, is stepping out from his accustomed backstage role as a lobbyist and political fundraiser to campaign publicly for one of Steele’s challengers.

Barbour, 46, favors Wisconsin GOP Chairman Reince Priebus. Barbour said he has no interest in the job for himself and is not acting at the behest of his famous uncle.

“There’s only one Haley,” he said. “And I’m not trying to be Haley. I’m happy doing my own thing.”

But he acknowledges that being the governor’s nephew hasn’t hurt his lobbying business.
