Chris Cillizza reports:
Former RNC official Maria Cino added her name to the list Saturday, and boasts strong backing from the political strategist set. (It’s not clear whether that support will translate to strength among the 168 members of the RNC.)
It’s not immediately clear how much of an impact Steele’s decision — whatever it is — will have on the race. Estimates of his support on the committee vary widely but never go above 50 (or so) votes, well short of the 85 votes he would need to claim a second term.
