RNC announces $10 million plan to beef up Republican outreach

(CNN) – Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus 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 - 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.

At year's end, RNC had cash while other committees had debt

(CNN) - The Republican National Committee ended the election cycle with nearly $4.7 million in the bank, unlike President Barack Obama, Republican Mitt Romney and the Democratic National Committee - all in the red.

RNC chairman Reince Priebus said the committee's fundraising was "truly impressive" and that the committee raised $2.3 million in December, to close the year with the surplus - something the committee could not say after the 2010 midterm elections, under previous leadership.

Priebus elected to a second term as RNC chair

Charlotte, North Carolina (CNN) - Reince Priebus pledged to grow his party by making direct appeals to minority and young voters as well as dedicating campaign resources to try and win in traditional Democratic states, as members of the Republican National Committee re-elected him Friday to a second two-year term at their Winter Meeting.

"We must compete in every state and every region, building relationships with communities we haven't before," he said. "At the RNC, we are dropping red and blue analysis. We must be a party concerned about every American in every neighborhood."

GOP chief plans major overhaul to party

Washington (CNN) -- The chair, perhaps the most famous chair in political history, stands in the office of a large, nondescript cement building just a stone's throw away from the U.S. Capitol.

That's right, the chair Clint Eastwood used as a prop in his rambling and at times incoherent critique of President Barack Obama at the Republican National Convention is now one of the many pieces of political memorabilia in Reince Priebus' spacious office on First Street in Washington.

First on CNN: Attracting minority voters a key GOP goal as Obama begins second term

Washington (CNN) – Days after President Barack Obama is sworn-in for a second term, Republican leaders from across the country will assemble in the southern city where Obama accepted his party’s presidential nomination in September to strategize a path forward for the GOP in a nation experiencing major demographic shifts.

It will be a three-day discussion focused primarily on how to grow the Republican Party by convincing black, Hispanic and Asian voters that the GOP better represents their values than the Democratic Party, according to a party official involved in the planning of the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
