CNN: RNC announces $10 million to beef up GOP outreach
Republican National Committee announced Sunday the organization will spend $10 million on hundreds of staff workers to communicate conservative principles in cities across the country. As part of its conclusion from a months-long “autopsy” of the GOP – to be formally announced Monday – the RNC will also work to shorten the primary calendar, limit the number of debates in presidential primaries, and move up the party’s convention date. In the outreach portion of the plan, Priebus said, the RNC will pay people “from coast to coast in Hispanic, African-American, Asian communities” to talk about the GOP brand. “(They’ll be) talking about what we believe in, going to community events, going to swearing-in ceremonies, being a part of the community on an ongoing basis … make the case for our party and candidates,” he said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
UPDATE: Tomorrow morning at the National Press Club the RNC will unveil the findings from the Growth and Opportunity Project charting the Party’s way ahead.
