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."

Video: Watts suggests he can bring increased diversity to RNC

(CNN) – Former Rep. J.C. Watts, who has indicated interest in running for the Republican National Committee chairmanship, suggested he could help his party build relationships with diverse voters. RNC members, however, have dismissed the idea of Watts unseating chairman Reince Priebus with skepticism, disbelief and even a hint of ridicule.

“I think God likes diversity. So if it’s good for God it ought to be good for Republicans,” he said on CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront.” “But the fact is its hard to have perspective and it’s hard to have diversity with women or black or red or yellow or brown or white if you have no relationships.

“And if I don't know the chairman of the Republican National Committee, I have no confidence that he has any relationship” with black, white, or Hispanic voters, he said.

Rove unloads on Todd Akin on eve of GOP convention

Tampa, Florida (CNN) - Republican strategist Karl Rove ramped up his criticism of Missouri candidate Todd Akin on Monday, calling his recent remarks about rape and abortion "morally incomprehensible" and insisting that he drop out of the race.

"I know Todd. He is a good man and he's got a good heart," Rove said at a breakfast in Tampa hosted by Politico. "He said a really stupid, indefensible thing from which there is no recovery and if he really cares are about the values of conservatism and pro-life, he will not go down for defeat as the biggest loss by a Republican candidate for Senate in modern history."
