I don't understand this one.
Bush has raised money for Steele.
Guiliani has raised money for Steele.
Mehlman has raised money for Steele.
But he's complaining about money not coming in from "on high"?
The alarm bells started ringing inside the Senate campaign of Republican Lt. Gov. Michael Steele earlier this week: Was the national GOP leaving them behind?
As reported today, with anywhere from five to seven U.S. Senate seats to defend around the country, the GOP sent signals it would not match the quick infusion of $750,000 that the national Democratic party put into television ads in Maryland on behalf of Rep. Benjamin Cardin.
"They've made the commitment to have Sen. [Hillary] Clinton come here, Sen. [Barack] Obama come here. The natural question is: 'This is what these guys are doing; what are you prepared to do?' " Steele said in an interview yesterday.
During the courtship that brought Steele into the race, he had been made many promises, his aides said. Steele said he recognizes that the political landscape has changed. And he's appreciative of all the party has done for him to this point--which is substantial.
