Eric Cantor, next Republican National Committee chairman?

Former RNC chair Michael Steele thinks it’s a possibility after the House majority leader was defeated Tuesday in a Virginia Republican primary.

“With the upcoming presidential election, there’s a lot of interest in Eric Cantor serving as national chairman of the RNC,” Steele said Saturday on MSNBC’s “Up With Steve Kornacki.”

“In fact I think he’d be interesting because he started dialogues on poverty and some other issues that were sort of outside of what Republicans have traditionally talked about. So he could bring a very interesting voice into that space,” he said.
