Steele sets the bar for how he should be judged
Steele, who has often found himself under fire during his tenure at the top of the GOP made a stop in Henrico County Wednesday night. Steele was at the helm of his “Fire Pelosi” bus. He is taking the bus across the country to help boost candidates from coast to coast. It is part of a major effort to help the Republicans take control of one or both houses of Congress.
On Wednesday, his stop was in support of Chuck Smith, a little known candidate taking on longtime Democrat Bobby Scott.
I asked Steele about his perception among the members of the party he leads and if the GOP makes great gains in November, how he should be judged. This is what he said:
As for Chuck Smith, Steele’s visit was a tremendous boost to the Republican facing a decidedly uphill battle against Scott. The Chairman did not seem phased by Smith’s challenge, comparing him to Scott Brown, the Republican from Massachusetts who surprisingly won Ted Kennedy‘s former seat in the U.S. Senate.
