The first black Republican woman elected to Congress has no reservations about Rep. Steve Scalise keeping his post as House majority whip in light of revelations that he once spoke to a white supremacist group.
Rep.-elect Mia Love, of Utah, instead offered her firm support Sunday for Scalise, whom she praised for his "humility."
"I believe he should stay in leadership," Love said on ABC's "This Week."
Scalise conceded recently that he unwittingly spoke in 2002 to a white supremacist group in Louisiana. The news sparked some calls for Scalise to resign from his leadership position, just as Republicans are poised to take control of Congress.
