ABC News' Rick Klein reports: Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele tonight said he plans to get in touch with Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin soon — and indicated that he wants her help in the off-year gubernatorial races in New Jersey and Virginia. "I plan on talking to Gov. Palin very soon," Steele said in a written statement. "She is an important and galvanizing voice in the Republican Party. I believe she will be very helpful to the party this year as we wage critical campaigns in Virginia and New Jersey. I am certain this has been a difficult decision for her to step down as Alaska's governor. She has been a good governor for her state and I wish her and the Palin family the best during this transition."
