Mississippi governor Haley Barbour's son nephew is trying to rally up support to depose current Republican National Chairman Steele. (His dad used to run the RNC, and he's angling for at least a power-broker spot in the 2012 presidential elections.) Mitch McConnell and John Boehner wouldn't mind if that happened either, but are sort of resigned to him staying on top. [NYT]
