Priebus: Romney was vulnerable like a "duck on the pond"

Washington (CNN) - The top Republican Party official on Saturday urged conservatives to unite behind his plan to revitalize the party and deliver electoral success in the upcoming midterm and presidential elections.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said the party must avoid the situation of 2012 GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, where he was left sitting as a "duck on the pond."

New jobs numbers not good enough, Republicans say

(CNN) - While Friday's new employment numbers show the U.S. economy added 175,000 jobs in May, Americans are "still waiting for the recovery President Obama promised years ago," according to the Republican National Committee's chairman.

"President Obama has given plenty of speeches about jobs, but he's done very little to support the kind of commonsense pro-growth policies Republicans have offered year after year," Reince Priebus said in a statement. "Instead, his government has been wasting precious time and money."

In response to Dole, Priebus declares RNC 'open for repairs'

(CNN) – Responding to criticism from Sen. Bob Dole, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus bluntly stated Sunday that the GOP is in fact "open for repairs."

Last week the 1996 Republican presidential nominee said his party has changed so much in the past decade that even former President Ronald Reagan wouldn't find a place in it.

N.H. primary gets boost from national GOP leaders

Concord, New Hampshire (CNN) – Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus each voiced support Monday for the New Hampshire primary, welcome endorsements for a state that is constantly fighting to protect its unique status as the first state to hold a primary in the race for president.

“I like the process of primaries originating in smaller states,” Paul said before headlining a New Hampshire Republican Party fundraiser. “I’ve seen how the election works around here. I’ve seen how it gets close … there are candidates on every corner meeting and shaking hands and it is a hopeful aspect of politics of meeting people one-on-one even in a nation of three hundred million.”

Priebus demands Holder resign over AP probe

(CNN) – U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder must resign after his agency collected two months of telephone records from reporters at the Associated Press, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said Tuesday.

"Freedom of the press is an essential right in a free society. The First Amendment doesn't request the federal government to respect it; it demands it," Priebus wrote in a statement Tuesday. "Attorney General Eric Holder, in permitting the Justice Department to issue secret subpoenas to spy on Associated Press reporters, has trampled on the First Amendment and failed in his sworn duty to uphold the Constitution."

Improved jobs report still prompts GOP ire

(CNN) – A better-than-expected jobs report Friday was still cause for concern among Republicans, who said the wide swath of Americans still looking for work were being poorly served by President Barack Obama's policies.

"Today's jobs report brings some good news for a lucky few who found jobs–but not nearly enough hope for the millions of Americans who still need work," wrote Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus in a statement issued shortly after the jobs report's release. He singled out the Affordable Care Act, Obama's sweeping health care law, as a cause for further unemployment.

Paltry jobs report has Republicans pointing fingers

(CNN) – A monthly jobs report showing sluggish hiring in March gave Republicans an opening Friday to chastise President Barack Obama's economic policies.

"The president's policies continue to make it harder for Americans to find work," House Speaker John Boehner wrote in a statement released a half hour after the Labor Department report was released. "Hundreds of thousands fled the workforce last month and unemployment remains far above what the Obama administration promised when it enacted its 'stimulus' spending plan."

RNC chair suggests Democrats support infanticide through Planned Parenthood

(CNN) – Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus linked the women's health provider Planned Parenthood to the killing of newborn children in an op-ed article published Wednesday on the conservative website RedState.com.

His article - under the headline "Media Covers up Democrat-Backed Planned Parenthood's Support for Infanticide" - blasted the media for not covering the recent testimony of a Planned Parenthood representative in Florida, who provided veiled responses to questions from state lawmakers on what should happen to a baby born after a botched abortion.

RNC announces $10 million plan to beef up Republican outreach

As part of its conclusion from a months-long "autopsy" of the GOP - which will 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.
