Priebus Gives Postmortem on 2012 Election
Posted by Staff

Today, on The Laura Ingraham Show, Reince Priebus, the Chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), addressed the inability of the RNC to achieve an effective grassroots initiative because of limited time, inadequate resources, and poor ground support.  “We didn’t even have a credit card that was functional in the building for ninety days because they were all suspended here when I walked in the door,” Priebus said.

When Laura pressed him on the RNC’s ineffectiveness, Priebus was adamant that in a presidential campaign pressure emanates from other areas. “You can be the quarterback but you don’t always get to call all the plays," Priebus asserted. "The presidential campaign has a lot of authority.”

Priebus went on to say that the Democrats’ massive grassroots campaigns were not spear-headed by the DNC but by “massive soft money organizations” like Moveon.org. Republican soft money groups have to be involved in communities throughout the nation year round, because “just buying network television [ads] for six months is not the best use of money.”

Laura also questioned Priebus on immigration and whether Republican support for a “path to citizenship and voting” would expand the GOP reach in 2016.

Priebus agreed that a policy of amnesty would fail to entice Hispanic voters saying,“I don’t agree that immigration is a top three issue among Hispanics.” The critical issue is the tone of the party towards immigrants and “how [Republicans] communicate” without being “offensive,” he stated.
