I just saw this on C-SPAN.
“Michael Steele, Former Lt. Gov. of Maryland was elected the new Chairman of the Republican National Committee. He received 91 votes on the sixth ballot. Eighty Five votes were needed to win.”
The video of his acceptance speech will be available soon.
In the meantime, here is his speech at the RNC convention last fall. There’s some good stuff in there; government should be limited so it never becomes powerful enough to infringe on the rights of individuals, change the tax code to let people keep more of their hard earned money, school choice, and the money quote, “drill, baby drill and drill now.”
