A sign is seen outside the Republican National Committe's winter meeting in National Harbor, Maryland January 14, 2011, as the RNC gathers to elect a new chairman. Michael Steele struggled on Friday in his bid for a new term as Republican National Committee chairman with party leaders seemingly prepared to oust him and install a new chief for the 2012 elections.
