EXCERPT FROM RNC CHAIRMAN REINCE PRIEBUS SPEECH AT WINTER MEETING IN CHARLOTTE, N.C. The theme meeting: Renew. Grow. Win. That is my agenda for the next two years. Renew our party. Grow our ranks. And win MORE elections.
Mr. President, if you’re listening, I have a message for you. We know you won the presidential election, and you like reminding us. Congratulations.
But you’ve made your party into one that promises more from government, but delivers less and less from our economy—particularly for Hispanics and African Americans, who have struggled disproportionately in the Obama economy.
And two years from now, your party is going to be up against Republicans that offer something better: more from this economy. More opportunity for everybody.
In the next election, I don’t know who people will vote for. I don’t even know who will run. But I know this: We will be a Republican Party that people will want to join. A party that inspires again. Not a party that just says “no”…but a party that says “follow us to a brighter future.” A party of prosperity, success, and freedom.
It doesn’t matter where you live, who you are, what you look like, or what your last name is. Because we will be a party for everyone, everywhere.
That’s the party you and I are here today to renew. That’s the party we are going to grow. That’s the party that can win.
As your Chairman, I will do everything I can to achieve this better future. But I want you to know it will take all of us. I need your help and your commitment. Together, we can build a better Republican Party.
Thank you—and God bless you TO READ THE FULL SPEECH
