    Michael Steele, chairman of the Republican National Committee, will be in Statesboro Saturday, one of only three cities he will visit in Georgia as part of the national “Fire Nancy Pelosi Bus Tour.”
    When he announced the tour, Steele stated that "The American people have been very clear from the church halls to the diners. They're all saying one thing: ‘Fire Nancy Pelosi! Retire Harry Reid’!" That, he said is just what the Republican Party intends to do.
    Steele is expected to arrive at the Holiday Inn on the Veterans memorial Parkway By-Pass at 5:30 p.m., and the rally will last until about 7 p.m. There will be plenty of finger-food and drinks provided for all those who attend the rally, said Bulloch County Republican Party Chairman Lawton Sack.
    Steele is coming to Statesboro to speak to Congressional voters in the 12th District about why he thinks it is important Republicans win the seat in November. Incumbent Democrat John Barrow is opposed by Republican challenger Ray McKinney.
    McKinney said: “We're excited to know that my effort to unseat John Barrow has gotten the attention of the National Republican Party. We hope his visit will convince not only the Republicans but all conservative Georgians who live in the 12th District that this really is a must win contest.”
    Steele's visit to Statesboro is being co-sponsored by the Bulloch County Republican Party and the Georgia Southern College Republicans. Sack said: “It’s an honor to have someone like Steele recognize the importance of defeating John Barrow in the 12th District.”
    Sack continued, “We must take back 39 Congressional seats in order to send Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid back to their homes. Only then will we be able to restore the traditional American values of our founding fathers to our federal government in Washington.”
    Steele and the “Fire Pelosi Bus Tour” are visiting more than 100 cities of all sizes across America. For more about the tour, go to
