Steele To Hold Rally With McDonnell

Anita Kumar

Michael Steele, the controversial chairman of the Republican National Committee, will hold his first rally with Virginia GOP gubernatorial nominee Bob McDonnell Saturday.

Steele, the party's first black chairman drew strong criticism in the weeks following his January election for a series of political gaffes, but that has subsided in recent weeks.

"We are honored to have Chairman Steele joining us on the campaign trail in Bristol on Saturday,'' said Tucker Martin, McDonnell's spokesman. "Together, Bob and the Chairman are going to let voters in Southwest Virginia know about Bob's commitment to growing our economy and creating good jobs all across the Commonwealth."

McDonnell and Steele will campaign together in the Republican friendly city of Bristol in southwest Virginia on the Tennessee border, where both men are expected to be greeted warmly.

The right off the bat bias of Michael Steele to paint a specific picture of the relationship between the two men smells of a racism of the black race. How dare you Ms. Kumar? The article isn't even necessarily immediately about Michael Steele but you still couldn't resist jabbing Mr. Steel could you?

Being a minority yourself it's sad to see such blatant disregard for those who are of a different race than yourself. This is exactly what is wrong with politics and our country today.
