Steele: GOP Welcomes Pro-Choice Moderates

Sunday, 17 May 2009 04:42 PM

The chairman of the Republican Party says the GOP is open to supporting pro-abortion rights candidates.

Appearing Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press," the head of the Republican National Committee responded to a question from moderator David Gregeory about the viability of a GOP politician who isn't strictly anti-abortion.

"We've had wonderful pro, pro-choice candidates," Steele said. "[Former] Governor Christie Todd Whitman [of New Jersey], for example, was a very successful Republican governor. ...

"I look forward to working to build a strong pro-life coalition within the Democratic Party since that's -- this is the direction the president wants to go."
