Michael Steele

MSNBC Political Analyst & Former Chair of the Republican National Committee

As the former chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), Michael Steele was charged with revitalizing the Republican Party. He is an expert on political strategy, fundraising, PACs, and election reform.

Steele made history in 2003 as the first African-American elected to statewide office in Maryland, and again with his subsequent chairmanship of the RNC. A self-described "Lincoln Republican," he also served as Chairman of the GOPAC. Under Steele's leadership, the RNC broke fundraising records in the 2010 cycle by raising more than $192 million and Republicans won 63 House seats, the biggest pickup since 1938.

An MSNBC political analyst since 2010, Steele frequently appears across the network's programming and special political coverage, offering his take on the top news stories and issues of the day. His writings on law, business and politics have appeared in leading outlets including the Wall Street Journal, Politico, The Journal of International Security Affairs and his book, Right Now: A 12-Step Program for Defeating the Obama Agenda, received critical praise for delivering a call to arms for grassroots America.

An in-demand speaker who examines the crux of business, politics and race, Steele draws from his unique combination of experience to deliver relevant and insightful perspective on the day’s most important issues affecting individuals and businesses across the country.
