House GOP Whip Eric Cantor (Va.) took a shot at Republican Party chairman Michael Steele Thursday for holding a GOP retreat in Hawaii.
Cantor, who has differed with Steele over Republican chances to retake the House in 2010, indicated he wasn’t crazy about the idea of RNC members relaxing on Hawaiian beaches when asked whether it was the right kind of image for the party to project.
“Chairman Steele has a role to play in these elections,” Cantor began. “Obviously, I have said that I disagree with his statement that we can’t take back the House. So, do I want voters to think that Republicans do nothing but go to beach resorts in January? No.”
The Republican National Committee did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
