Coffee With Steele and Bloomberg

Here's the invite for that get-together with Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele, New York Republicans and independent Michael Bloomberg on April 1.

The invite is going out to prospective attendees today. The host committee also includes, basically, every Republican group in New York, including some which are not too supportive of letting Bloomberg run in the Republican primary.
