    Michael Steele, former lieutenant governor of Maryland, has decided to run for the chairmanship of the Republican National Committee and is in talks with Newt Gingrich to win the former House speaker's endorsement, FOX News learned Tuesday.

    Steele declined to comment, but a source close to the situation said Steele would announce his candidacy as early as Thursday.

    The source also contradicted a report in Tuesday's Washington Times that Steele and Gingrich were competing for the RNC post.

    I think Newt is going to work with Michael.

    same,

    I would like to meet Newt.

    They say whenever he walks into a room he is usually the smartest one there

    I think either would be a good choice.

    I agree but Michael Steele is still viable as a political candidate due to Newts baggage. So I think it would be best to have Newt as the RNC chair and have Michael Steele run for Governor or Senator.
