Conant leaving RNC
Alex Conant, the press secretary of the Republican National Committee who is known for his prolific emails, is leaving his post on Friday.
Conant told the BBR that he had originally agreed to stay on for a month when Steele fired almost the entire RNC staff after being elected chair.
Conant, who previously in the White House, said he is looking forward to some time off but hopes to write and do consulting. He will remain a senior advisor to the RNC.
