Michael Steele’s RNC staff running for the exit

Hmm, doesn’t seem that they’re too confident DJ Mike Master’s gonna triumph.
With the clock ticking down until the next Republican National Committee chair is selected (and time seemingly running out for current chair Michael Steele), some of the committee’s highest-profile staff members are heading for the exits.
From an email sent this morning by RNC Communications Director Doug Heye:
I wanted to let you know that I’ve decided to leave the Republican National Committee following our Winter Meeting next week. At the Winter Meeting, the committee will be electing a Chair and I want to give whomever that might be the opportunity to choose their own staff without any complications.
Heye’s not the only one, according to Politico. The committee’s Chief of Staff, Mike Leavitt, is also heading out the door this month.
The RNC’s 168 voting members will meet later this month to determine who will helm the RNC through the 2012 presidential election.
