Republican National Committee
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Jan 31, 2011 — New RNC chair Reince Priebus said big donors are starting to come back now that he's in charge. Priebus said he's focused "like a laser" on reducing the $23 million debt and that the RNC relied too much on high cost, low yield direct marketing.
Jan 14, 2011 — His victory came after seven rounds of voting and plenty of wrangling behind the scenes. Priebus, chair of the Wisconsin Republican Party, is a staunch conservative who's regarded as a rising star in the party.
Jan 3, 2011 — Candidates for the Republican National Committee chairmanship are debating and the RNC is providing a live feed. Current chairman Michael Steele is fighting for another two-year term despite withering criticism over how he has led the RNC since 2008.
