Changes at the top: RNC

Ken Mehlman will be stepping down as Chairman of the Republican National Committee. Chairman Mehlman, who spoke at the NYYRC August general meeting, is likely to be replaced by Maryland Lt. Gov Michael Steele, who made an unsuccessful bid for the Senate this last go-round.

Any of you who think that Mehlman's falling on his sword after Tuesday's Republican losses, think again. Mehlman made his decision to step down "win, lose or draw" earlier this year.

Steele gathered a lot of support during his run for the Senate this year, and he makes a fine choice to head the RNC. Rumor has it he's also been offered a post on the president's Cabinet. We'll know soon which offer he accepts.

This is the first of probably many Republican party changes we'll see over the coming weeks. It'll be interesting to see what unfolds here in New York State.
