Former Nevada Gov. Bob List said he’s not seeking to become chairman of the Republican National Committee, despite a Washington Post blog post that included List among possible challengers to current Chairman Michael Steele.
"I don’t know where in the world that came from," List said of the report. "I haven’t had any inclination to move in that direction."
The report said Steele, who hasn’t said whether or not he will seek another term after his current term expires in January, needs 85 votes from the committee to stay on.
The Post reported Steele so far is thought to have support from 50 to 60 committee members.
List said he thinks Steele has done a good job at the position but he isn’t committed one way or another on who should be the next party chairman.
"I’m not committed to anybody, I’m just going to watch it evolve a little," List said.
Others the Post mentioned as possible challengers to Steele include Wisconsin Republican chairman Reince Priebus former Republican National Committee Chairman Mike Duncan, Connecticut Republican Party Chairman Chris Healy and California committeeman Ron Nehring.
