Republican National Committee

Jul 17, 2014 — Yes, Republicans plan to use technology to get out voters in the midterms much like President Obama used it in 2012. But he was Sputnik to their planned moon landing, an official said.

May 9, 2014 — If there are other Herman Cains and Michele Bachmanns out there with 2016 presidential hopes, new RNC rules may make it harder for them to go from "who?" to Republican presidential contenders.
Comments |
Apr 2, 2014 — In practical terms, the Supreme Court ruling could mean more money flowing to political operatives and party committees.
Comments |
Mar 17, 2014 — A year after the release of a Republican Party report on what went wrong in 2012, party leaders say they have better data collection and outreach. Immigration reform, however, remains a thorny issue.
Comments |
Jan 23, 2014 — As if to underscore GOP efforts at outreach to women voters, a breakout session of the Republican National Committee's latest "rising stars" at the group's winter meeting Thursday in Washington, D.C., entirely comprised young women.

Dec 2, 2013 — The Republican National Commission tweeted Saturday about Parks' "bold stand in ending racism," triggering a snark avalanche. While the gaffe was relatively minor, it plays into the damaging narrative about the Republican Party — that it only pays lip service to the notion of increasing its appeal to minority voters.
Comments |
Mar 18, 2013 — The Republican National Committee report offers the party a way forward after its 2012 failure to defeat President Obama, who was long seen as vulnerable because of a relatively high jobless rate and uninspiring economic growth.
Comments |
Apr 30, 2012 — The video titled "Forward" distills much of Obama's argument for his re-election. It opens with news footage meant to recall how truly perilous was the state of the economy leading into his election, then leads into his achievements in office — the economic stimulus, health-care reform, the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq and the killing of Osama bin Laden, among them.
Comments |
Apr 25, 2012 — The RNC video was a clear attempt by the GOP to take Obama's coolness asset and turn it into a liability while at the same time taking Romney's serious and stiff managerial style and trying to make it a plus by sending the message that serious times called for a serious man.
Comments |
Apr 6, 2012 — Disappointing jobs numbers reinforced a vexing trend that has shown up in the Labor Department data for months. During the current recovery, women have failed to regain jobs at anything near a rate comparable to men. It's a potential political problem for the president which the GOP would like to exploit.
