(CNN) – An outspoken Republican moderate, Meghan McCain took to Twitter to express frustration with her party following a less-than-stellar night for the GOP.
"I don't need to do any soul searching about what the GOP is doing wrong, I knew what was wrong four years ago when my father lost. #evolve," she wrote on Twitter Wednesday morning after Republican nominee Mitt Romney was projected to lose the election to President Barack Obama Tuesday night and Congress would remain with Republicans controlling the House and Democrats the Senate.

McCain, a writer and daughter to former presidential candidate Sen. John McCain tweeted again, "Keep calling people like me RINO's and see how many elections we keep winning."
A "RINO" or "Republican in name only" is a term used within the political sphere to describe a self-identifying member of the Republican Party who does not conform to a certain mold of a conservative Republican.
McCain pushed back on the apparent name-calling Wednesday morning suggesting the Republican Party needs to, as she tweeted, "evolve" on a number of issues to keep up with an increasingly diverse American electorate where Democrats appear to have an advantage.
McCain's reaction on Twitter is part of a growing narrative woven from the Republicans losses in Tuesday's election and joins a chorus of Republican voices calling for change within the party.
But, win or lose, McCain got a little back-up from her mother on the social media site.
"Good job Meghan!!! RT @McCainBlogette: Keep calling people like me RINO's and see how many elections we keep winning," tweeted Cindy McCain, wife to Sen. McCain and Meghan's mother.
