Steele launches re-election website

Washington (CNN) - Michael Steele is up with a new website for campaign to be re-elected chairman of the Republican National Committee.

The website - - is accompanied by a video featuring Steele explaining how the RNC, under his watch, helped Republicans make huge gains at the ballot box in November.

"Campaigning personally in all 50 states, Michael Steele led the most successful voter turnout effort in history in 2010," Steele's biography boasts.

The website also features a photo gallery heavy on images from Steele's "Fire Pelosi!" bus tour, sure to give fuel to his critics who claimed the tour was little more than a photo-op designed to help his re-election effort.

Steele will face at least five declared challengers in the election, to be held in January.

UPDATE: Steele kept the political world guessing about his future until late Monday, but according to data available on and, the domain was registered on Dec. 8.

    You're pathetic.
    Bow-out gracefully.
    By the way Obama is still President of the United States, and will be re-elected in 2012. You will not be the Chairman of the RNC for much longer, and your name is almost already forgotten.

    Hey Mushmouth...I wish we could say we'd miss you. No really. Because if we missed you, that would mean you went away.

    I'm certain that a lot of Dems will contribute to Steele's reelection campaign.

    The RNC really blew it when they nominated Steele into a position of authority. Seems as if he is the only American alive who didn't understand why he was given the position - still thinks it was all about HIM. How the mighty (dreamers) will fall.

    Gee, let's see. The GOP wins an election landslide on his watch ... so, of course, we need to fire his butt.

    Welcome to the GOP wing of the Tea Party.

    Why can't somebody with a heart tell the poor, pretty guy that he does not ever have a chance og ever getting any
    credibility anywhere, except maybe as a professional sales promotor of shopping mall openings.

    This man is a liar... His own Repubs will kick him to thecurve. He think because he is black he could
    walk into our President Obama;s shoes and become President. The Republicans were only using him against a Black President. These people don't love America and the American people. They only love themselves, their riches and
    most of all Power. Donald Trump is a loser how could he said that President Obama caused disresept to Us. I travled around the World for years and people hatred for America because the worse when the Repubs were in Power. People around the world is in love with President Obama and are laughing at us here for the way we treats him. Dumb is the new
    America. Sarah Palin, Rommey, they all will be coming out of the woodwork to run for President... The World is looking and laughing.
