(Newser) – Here they come: Less than two weeks after the Republicans' happy day, the first official challenger to RNC chief Michael Steele has announced, reports the Washington Post. It's former Michigan GOP chief Saul Anuzis, who says of the gaffe-prone Steele: His "record speaks for itself." At least a dozen others are considering, says Politico, which reports that Pennsylvania party chief Rob Gleason is actively gauging his own support. Steele hasn't said whether he's running again early next year, but he could just sneak back in if too many line up against him, notes the Post.
