RNC Chair Steele: GOP Should Reach Out to Gays, Pro-Choice Voters


Newly-elected RNC chairman Michael Steel appeared on FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace and

WALLACE: You are one of the co-founders of something called the Republican Leadership Council which supports candidates who favor abortion and gay rights.


WALLACE: Does the GOP needs to do a better job of reaching out to people who hold those views?

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...
