Biggert, who represents Chicago’s western suburbs, says Steele’s recent comments about the Afghanistan War were “a huge mistake.”
In an appearance on WLS-AM radio Wednesday, Biggert called his position “outrageous” and said Steele should step down.
Steele recently said the war in Afghanistan was a mistake, as well as a conflict chosen by President Barack Obama.
But the war began long before Obama was elected, and most Republican officials support the war.
