RNC Chairman Michael Steele, and Summit on Slain Pakistani Governor Salmaan Tasee Today on BlogTalkRadio

michael-steele13Michael Steele: The RNC Chairman weighs in on his progress since being elected in 2009—and how the GOP has harnessed the power of the Tea Party. “I became chairman at a time when no one would identify themselves as a Republican,” he tells New Captains of Industry host George Jarkesy, “let alone run for office as one.” Mike also boasts that he’s been instrumental in amassing a much larger war chest than his rivals. “The party smashed through every record in terms of money raised in a midterm election by any party committee whose party is out of power, meaning we didn’t control the White House, we didn’t control the Congress, we didn’t control the Sentate,” he says. “We raised $192 million over the last two years—which is 47 percent more than the Democrats did they were in the exact same position we were in, in 2006.”
