GOP boss takes a New York bow

New York -- The Republican National Committee chairman, Michael Steele, doesn't get to boast much about congressional victories in a blue state like New York. But boast he is doing after last night's big GOP congressional showing, including in New York state.

“Over the past two years, New Yorkers have witnessed the results of President Obama and Nancy Pelosi’s reckless tax-and-spend policies, and last night they told Washington that they have had enough by electing five new Republican candidates to the U.S. House.  These Republican victories are clear evidence of the rising tide of the Republican Party in New York and the failure of the Democrat leadership in Washington, D.C.  These outstanding Republican candidates were elected because of their willingness to stand up to President Obama’s job-killing policies, which have stalled New York’s economic recovery.  On behalf of the Republican Party, I would like to congratulate new Representatives Michael Grimm, Nan Hayworth, Chris Gibson, Richard Hanna, and Tom Reed on their successful campaigns for limited government and fiscal responsibility.”
