New GOP National Chairman Michael Steele announces he is “going beyond the base” to widen broader support for the Republican Party. So his first act is to promise a role to the former head of the Michigan Republican Party, who demanded that Ron Paul not be allowed to participate in any of the primary debates because he was appealing to — people outside the base (of Bush worshipers).
“The former Maryland lieutenant governor has already told one of his chief rivals, conservative businessman and former Michigan Republican Party Chairman Saul Anuzis, that there will be a place for him in helping to run the RNC under Mr. Steele’s chairmanship.
“‘He wants me to be part of it, no specifics,” Mr. Anuzis told The Washington Times on Saturday. “We’re to talk next week.”‘
