Chairman of the losing teamLook who's hanging out with the President now.
Florida Senator Mel Martinez is on tap to be the new Chairman of the RNC. Which is sad news for the current chairman, Ken Mehlman, who will leave the post in January, according to the Washington Post.
The Times article said that Martinez allegedly beat out Michael Steele of Maryland who "expressed interest in the job." But with Florida's electoral votes always up as a top prize in presidential elections, it doesn't take a genius to figure out who would get the job.
