Michael Steele angered some social conservatives earlier this month when he stated in an interview that he personally opposes a federal marriage amendment.

I didn't know this was Steele's position on the marriage amendment. That is one question we need to ask the other candidates. Here is the link to submit and vote on questions for the RNC Debate:

Republicans should 'right' their course
Jim Brown - OneNewsNow - 12/16/2008 8:30:00 AM
One of the men hoping to head the Republican National Committee says the GOP cannot expand its influence unless it promotes a conservative fiscal foreign policy and social agenda.

A crowded field of candidates is vying to become the next Republican National Committee (RNC) chair. Among those who have announced they will run for the top job include former Mike Huckabee spokesman Chip Saltsman, Michigan Republican Party chairman Saul Anuzis, South Carolina GOP chairman Katon Dawson, and former Maryland Lieutenant Governor Michael Steele.

Current RNC chairman Mike Duncan and former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell are in the race as well. Blackwell says Republicans simply need to realize that in a two-party system, Democrats have been the party on the left, and Republicans the party on the right.

"When we are true to our principles, we win. When we move away from our principles, we lose," Blackwell contends. "During this period of traveling in the political wilderness, I hope we find our soul and get back on the course, and that course is the right course, and the right course is to the right."

Michael Steele angered some social conservatives earlier this month when he stated in an interview that he personally opposes a federal marriage amendment. But Steele, who argues the issue of same-sex "marriage" should be decided by the states, says if he becomes GOP chairman, he would support a federal marriage amendment because it is in the party platform.

“The central message is that the Republican Party has a great future, if we get back to being the party of principle, clarity and conviction. And we’re going to do that.” --Mike Huckabee

What are the pros and cons of a "federal" vs. a "state" marriage amendment? Didn't Mike support the Federal Marriage Amendment?
