DNC - Statement by DNC Chairman Tim Kaine on New RNC Chairman

Washington, DC – Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine issued the following statement in response to the election of Michael Steele as the next chairman of the Republican National Committee:


“My congratulations to Michael Steele on his election as chairman of the Republican National Committee. Together, we have the honor of leading our respective Parties during one of the most important periods in our country’s history. I look forward to working with Chairman Steele as we set out to put partisanship and the politics of the past aside to get our economy working again. The American people have sent a clear message that the challenges we face are too great for us to get bogged down by outmoded ideological divides. They have challenged us to work together to find practical solutions that will put this country back on the right track. President Obama and the Democratic Party are answering that challenge, and I hope Chairman Steele will join us.”
