4/6/10 – Campaign Update
The past week has not boded well for the Republican National Committee… the recent scandal over the $2000 spent on a West Hollywood club has caught Michael Steele in a crossfire from both the right and left.

Also, this article draws some interesting comparisons between 2010 and 1946 – the GOP wave in 1946 surpassed even the 1994 Republican Revolution!
