RNC Chairman, Michael Steele, Comments on GOP Victories in Va. and NJ

November 4, 2009

Republican Party Chairman Michael Steele is asserting that GOP victories in governors' races in New Jersey and Virginia demonstrate "a transcendent party" on the move again.

Steele said on an early morning TV show Wednesday he thinks Chris Christie's victory in New Jersey and Robert McConnell's win in Virginia show that the GOP has "really found its voice again" after sustaining damaging losses last year.

But David Plouffe, the man who managed Barack Obama's winning presidential campaign last year, said he thought the elections presented a "mixed picture" and should not be overblown by either party. Plouffe told CBS he believes the GOP still has a problem because "Palin and Limbaugh and Beck are out there purging moderates from the party."
