GOP Senate Hopeful Michael Steele: The Scarlet'R'


It's an impediment. It's a hurdle I have to overcome. I've got an'R' here, a scarlet letter. For me to pretend I'm not a Republican would be a lie. [But to run as a proud Republican?] That's going to be tough, it's going to be tough to do. If this race is about Republicans and Democrats, I lose. —'Anonymous' Republican Senate Candidate, later unmasked as Maryland's Michael Steele, as quoted in the Washington Post
