Joining the conversation: former Republican National Committee Chair and Maryland Lt. Governor Michael Steele. Steele is a lifelong conservative who finds himself in pitched battle with those usurpers, thugs, kooks, and cowards who call themselves Republican today.
He served as the lieutenant governor of Maryland from 2003 to 2007; he was the first African-American elected to statewide office in Maryland. From 2009 until 2011 he chaired the Republican National Committee (RNC); he was the first African-American to serve in that capacity
Steele made an unsuccessful run in the 2006 U.S. Senate election in heavily Democratic Maryland, losing to Democrat Ben Cardin. Since 2011, he has contributed as a regular columnist for online magazine The Root and as a political analyst for MSNBC. In 2018, he became a Senior Fellow at Brown University’s Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs. He also hosts “The Michael Steele Podcast”, available wherever you get your podcasts.Michael Steele on Twitter
