Former ambassador and Republican official Ann Wagner announced Monday she will mount a bid to chair the Republican National Committee, becoming the second candidate to enter the race to replace incumbent chairman Michael Steele.
Wagner becomes the second candidate to declare her intention to run, after Michigan RNC member Saul Anuzis, who announced earlier this month. Both candidates are expected to be joined by others considering the race. Likely candidates include Wisconsin Republican Party chair Reince Priebus, former RNC political director Gentry Collins, Connecticut GOP chairman Chris Healy and former RNC chairman Mike Duncan.
