Steele To Hold Rally With McDonnell
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.
