Washington — After bowing out of the reelection race, former RNC chairman, Michael Steele had an interview with Hardball’s Chis Matthews and discussed the lack of African Americans in the Republican Party. The Hill reports:

What I tried to do [as chairman] was to broaden the landscape over which we could play, go into neighborhoods where we needed to be in, but hadn’t been in generations, and I think it made a difference,” he said, citing the election of African-American Reps. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and Allen West (R-Fla.).

After “Hardball” host Chris Matthews noted he rarely saw groups of blacks congregating at Republican conventions, Steele replied with his usual candor. “We could have used a few more brothers in the house, there’s no doubt about that.”

Steele lost his bid for a second term as RNC chairman on Friday, with Reince Priebus emerging as the new party chief after seven rounds of balloting.

Looking ahead, Steele predicted the president would maintain the tone of his recent speech in Tucson in the upcoming State of the Union address.
“It’s an opportunity for the administration to lay out an agenda,” he said.
