Virginia GOP Planning Rally To Reach Out To Minorities — Starring George Allen!

Finally — real minority outreach from the GOP. The Virginia Republicans have a big rally coming up this Saturday that’s designed to reach out to minority voters in Fairfax County.

Guess who is one of the featured speakers?

George Allen. Yes, that George Allen.

We checked in with the state GOP to ask if Allen is really an effective front-man for the party’s efforts to win over minorities, given the “macaca” scandal.

The answer? Yes! “George Allen has an excellent record on issues of diversity, reaching out to people,” Gerry Scimeca, communications director for the state party, told us. “His whole career, his whole life have been a testament to a guy who’s treated people equally across racial lines, across every kind of line.”
