Embattled GOP Chairman Michael Steele is telling Republican National Committee members he's running for re-election.

That's according to several participants listening to a conference call Monday night between Steele and the 168-member committee. They spoke on the condition of anonymity because the call was private.

The RNC will vote in January on whether to grant Steele a second two-year term or choose a successor from a multicandidate field.

Steele has watched his once strong support within the RNC rank and file all but evaporate, during a first term that has been marked by allegations of financial mismanagement and verbal missteps.
