Condi Rice steps onto the stage

Condoleezza Rice is wading back into the political waters, a sign she plans to maintain a higher profile in both world events and the battle for the soul of the GOP.

The former secretary of State is headlining the National Republican Congressional Committee’s annual fundraising dinner on Wednesday, a marquee slot often reserved for White House contenders. In a rare move, she recently penned an op-ed weighing in on the situation in Ukraine, and cut an ad for American Crossroads on behalf of her friend and former employee Dan Sullivan (R), who’s running for Senate in Alaska.

She has intentionally kept a low public profile since the end of the Bush administration. But as one of the party’s most powerful and popular women and one its few high-profile African-Americans, she’s in high demand within the GOP — and when she feels like speaking out, people listen.

“She’s very concerned with where the party is going, where the country is going, and that’s why you’re seeing her engaging,” Georgia Godfrey, Rice’s chief of staff, told The Hill. “What she’s going to do this cycle is really support the party, help empower leadership and help the party win back Congress.”
