Possible Rival Says He Has No Confidence in RNC’s Steele

Scott J. Ferrell/CQ Roll Call

RNC national committeeman Henry Barbour, the nephew of Republican Governors Association Chairman Haley Barbour, is playing a key role in the discussion. The Mississippi Republican is not expected to run, but contenders include Katon Dawson from South Carolina, Wisconsin GOP Chairman Reince Priebus, former Minnesota Sen. Norm Coleman, former Nevada Gov. Robert List, former Oklahoma Gov. Frank Keating and Nick Ayers, executive director of the Republican Governors Association.

Dawson has been among Steele’s most vocal critics, and now Healy is following suit.

Borrowing an analogy frequently used by President Barack Obama about who is in charge of driving the nation’s agenda, Healy said the question is “whether based on the last two years, someone should be given the keys to the car for another two years.”

“Right now, the car is a wreck. It’s totaled,” Healy added.
