RNC chairman Steele brings bus tour to SC coast

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele is bringing his nationwide tour to the South Carolina coast.

Steele campaigns in North Charleston on Friday for Republican congressional candidate Tim Scott, who is running in the state's coastal 1st Congressional District. He faces Democrat Ben Frasier.

Steele's visit is part of his so-called "Fire Pelosi Bus Tour", as Republicans campaign to oust Democrats from control of Congress.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visits South Carolina next weekend to speak at a National Association for the Advancement of Colored People dinner in Charleston.
