Id Steele wins re-election, some donors plan to keep their unofficial boycott, should he run?

If Michael Steele wins another term as chairman of the Republican National Committee, the RNC might continue to face major cash flow problems in the upcoming 2012 campaign.

Some of the party's biggest political donors and fundraisers are threatening to continue their unofficial boycott of the RNC if Steele wins, telling Politico's Jonathan Martin they simply don't trust the embattled chairman with their cash.

"The donor community has virtually no faith or confidence in Michael Steele to be the keeper of the keys," Al Hoffman, former finance chairman of the RNC, told Martin. "I have a hard time finding any major donor who would trust him to straighten out the RNC and run a principled and ethical fundraising operation. … Who's going to give to him as long as he's at the helm? Not me. My own slogan is now 'Anybody but Steele.'"

  • He should step down due to his ineffective messaging. Donors are free to do what they wish with their money. If they continue their unofficial boycott, then so be it. It's a clear way to send a message to the GOP.

  • I still say he has every right to run. If they don't want him there they will vote someone else in.
