For those of you interested, the balloting is taking place on the Republican National Committee chairmanship.

Incumbent Mike Duncan just pulled out.

Lots of conservatives breathing a sigh of relief. But who will take over?

Hot Air is tracking. Stacy McCain is live at the RNC.

And up-to-the-second reports on Twitter. Just search #rnc or #rncchair. Or go to tcotreport.

Update: Michael Steele is in the lead.

Update: Katy’s Conservative Corner has liveblogging of the proceedings. The latest:

UPDATE: 2:42 Latest vote total: Dawson 62, Steele 60, Anzuis 31, Blackwell 15. Time for Blackwell and Anzuis to think of getting out and making this a two horse race. Many conservatives are complaining that the GOP needs a Black chairman so we can look like we “care” about minorities. Your blogger thinks that choosing a chairman based on race would be for all the wrong reasons.

More soon. RNC is now in a proxy meeting. More soon!

Update: 2:57pm Eastern. Reports that Ken Blackwell is about to withdraw.

Update: 3:07pm Eastern. Blackwell withdraws. “I put my fullest support by the candidate that I think will…inspire hope, work with policy leaders, and have leadership/vision to pull us together and then to pull Americans together…behind Michael Steele.” Burst of applause.

Andy Roth wonders: Will Blackwell’s endorsement translate into actual votes for Steele?

Update 3:28pm Eastern: Steele 79 Dawson 69 Anuzis 20

Anuzis withdraws. No endorsement.

Recess for 15 minutes.

85 votes needed to win. Anuzis holds the kingmaker’s key.

Update 4:06pm Eastern. It’s Michael Steele.
