The race for chairman of the Republican National Committee has received a lot of attention in recent weeks. But with less than a month to go in the campaign, no clear leader has emerged among the six candidates, who include embattled incumbent Chairman Michael Steele, The Hill reports
The winner must receive votes from 85 of the 168 members of the Republican National Committee. Most committee members are still publicly undecided.
In addition to Steele, the candidates include Wisconsin Party Chairman Reince Priebus, former Michigan GOP chairman Saul Anuzis, former Missouri Republican Party chair Ann Wagner, former Bush administration official Maria Cino and former RNC political director Gentry Collins.
This scenario resembles the 2009 contest, which also featured six candidates. Steele won on the sixth ballot.
