Steele Weighing Bid For Maryland Statehouse
Former RNC Chair and former Lt. Governor of Maryland Michael Steele says he is weighing a possible run for Governor of Maryland.
Steele appeared on "Mornings on the Mall" on WMAL in Washington DC with me and co-host Brian Wilson Wednesday and he revealed that he would be doing some polling and some analysis to determine the next step:
"I'm looking at it. We'll see what the numbers tell us and how the whole thing lays out... We're supposed to be doing something a little later on in the Summer... I love my state and I think the potential in Maryland is huge. And you just, I look at the last eight years, I look at the tax increases, I look at some of the things they've done to drive jobs away and opportunity out the door and you just say 'can you contribute something?' So we'll weigh it and we'll see."
Steele last ran for public office in 2006 against Ben Cardin for US Senate in Maryland. He lost the race 55-44 percent.
