Ron Paul praises Steele

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) on Monday praised embattled Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele, saying he's done well in fundraising and has reached out to him.
Paul, a libertarian Republican who is often at odds with his party's leadership, is an unlikely supporter of a committee chairman. 
His endorsement also comes after a majority of state Republican chairmen circulated a letter backing Steele, making it unlikely he will be replaced in the short-term.

Paul has found support among Tea Party activists who distrust the government and Steele has spent much time courting the group to ensure they vote with the GOP in the fall. 

Steele has more work to do until the party secures the support of Tea Party activists. A recent survey showed that four in 10 Tea Party members are Democrats or independents. FULL STORY
