GOP Chair Michael Steele to Host Las Vegas Rally

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele is heading to Sin City to rally for local GOP candidates.

Steele, who has launched a nationwide "Fire Pelosi" bus tour, will host a $25-a-head fundraiser with Nevada Republican Party leaders and tea party organizers Oct. 3. Nevada GOP spokesman Jahan Wilcox says Steele will also host a rally that day for Republican candidates, where he will urge voters to overthrow Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Republicans are anxious to win back the House and strip Pelosi of her title in a critical midterm election where the stalled economic recovery seems to have bruised many Democratic candidates.

Steele's Las Vegas stop will follow rallies in Florida, North Carolina, Georgia and South Carolina.
