LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Republican National Committee member Saul Anuzis of Michigan says he's running to become the group's chairman.
The resident of Eaton County's Delta Township was one of six Republicans who competed last year for the post. He ended up losing to former Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael Steele.
Anuzis made the announcement Friday in a letter to the RNC membership.
He says his goal is to win back the presidency in two years' time.
Anuzis' announcement comes as members of his party are aggressively recruiting a challenger to current Chairman Michael Steele, whose tenure has been marked by questionable comments and concerns about finances.
The RNC must decide in January whether to keep Steele.
Steele says he has not decided whether to seek a second term.
