Saul Anuzis, the former chairman of the Michigan GOP who unsuccessfully ran for RNC chair in 2009, has decided to challenge Michael Steele for the post once again.
While trying to maintain a respectful tone toward Steele, Anuzis was sure to highlight many of the problems that have plagued the RNC with Steele at the helm.
“Chairman Steele’s record speaks for itself,” Anuzis wrote. “He has his way of doing things. I have mine.”
He went on to sat that to win in 2012, the RNC needs solid fundraising and a chairman who “steps out of the limelight and allows our elected officials and presidential candidates to be the face, voice, and agenda setter for Republicans.”
Anuzis said he would not “strive to be the voice or the face of our party” and vowed to “run a tight ship and be a conscientious steward of our donor’s money.”
In 2009, Anuzis was a distant third in voting, behind Michael Steele and Katon Dawson, before withdrawing from the race.
