Republican Party of Florida Chairman Jim Greer picked a winner. Former Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael Steele has been elected chairman of the Republican National Committee,
Steele will be the first black GOP chairman. Greer has been campaigning for him for weeks.
"We need a national chairman who can have a credible discussion with the American voter, excite and motivate the grassroots volunteers, promote diversity within our party and look to the future, not to the past,'' Greer said when he seconded Steele's nomination.
