Republican National Committee

Apr 2, 2014 — In practical terms, the Supreme Court ruling could mean more money flowing to political operatives and party committees.

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.
Comments |
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.
Comments |
Dec 5, 2011 — Appearing on Meet The Press Sunday, Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus said it was up to the GOP presidential candidates themselves to decide whether they should participate at a Dec. 27 debate to be moderated by Donald Trump, the real estate developer, reality show star and world-class egotist. Karl Rove, the big dog among Republican political strategists, disagrees.

Aug 31, 2011 — When Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer announces her state's primary date this week, it could set off a scramble for influence in the GOP presidential primary sweepstakes. Voting in Iowa and New Hampshire could start as soon as December and absentee ballots could go out before Halloween.
