Washington (CNN) – Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus Tuesday joined half dozen House Republican lawmakers at a rally outside the Senate steps to call on the American people to "fire" Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) by winning control of the Senate in 2014.
Speaking to a crowd of around 100 GOP staffers and supporters (and a handful of curious tourists), Priebus said, "For too long now, Sen. Reid has run the Senate with an iron fist, blocking legislation that would help working families."
The release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was detained by the Taliban for nearly five years, included a heavy dose of partisan politics Sunday morning, less than 24 hours after he was securely in American hands.
National Security Adviser Susan Rice was once again in the line of fire on the political talk shows, just as she was after the deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012.
Bergdahl’s release has ignited the debate over negotiating with groups the United States has determined to be terrorists.
(CNN) - Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus argued Sunday that Hillary Clinton's book rollout–including last week's leak of the Benghazi chapter and her anticipated book tour–may not be a buildup to a presidential campaign, but simply a strategic effort to make more money.
The chapter, according to Politico, contained a defense of her response to the attack, as well as criticism of Republicans who Clinton says play politics with the deadly assault that killed four Americans.
Washington (CNN) - The Republican National Committee is touting that it's the first party committee to top $100 million in fundraising this election cycle.
"I'm thankful to everyone who helped the RNC raise over $100 million for the 2014 cycle, 1st committee to hit that mark. Big, big year ahead," RNC Chairman Reince Priebus tweeted Wednesday morning.
(CNN) - It's probably not on your calendar but in the political world Tuesday marks the one-year anniversary of a symbolically important, self-determined revamp for the Republican Party.
As Republicans march on to the 2014 midterms armed with a plan for success - laid out in a post-election report prescribed from the party's failing in the 2012 - Democrats insist the so-called autopsy has had a negligible effect on transforming the GOP.
Washington (CNN) - The head of the Republican Party has a prediction about November's midterm elections.
"I think we're in for a tsunami-type election in 2014," Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Preibus said Tuesday at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. FULL POST
Washington (CNN) - The messages are all GOP meat and potatoes: smaller government, less regulation on industry, school choice, entitlement reform, and sparking job creation.
But the messengers aren't who you might expect from the Republican Party.
Two international events filled the Sunday political talk shows: Russian President Vladimir Putin’s next move in Crimea and Ukraine and the mystery surrounding the bizarre and puzzling disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.
If you missed any of the Sunday political chatter, we've got you covered:
Washington (CNN) - One of President Obama’s advisers said Sunday that, despite the President’s low popularity numbers, he’ll still be helpful for Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections.
A CNN Poll of Polls from last week, averaging four national surveys that measure the President's approval rating, said just 44% of Americans approve of the job Obama's doing in the White House.
But Dan Pfeiffer, senior adviser to the President, said despite those numbers, many Democratic candidates will still rely on help from Obama.
(CNN) – Holding the 2016 Republican National Convention in a location that could help the party politically-such as in a swing state–may be a "factor" in the decision-making process, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus told reporters on Monday.
But it's not the RNC's highest priority, he argued.
