RNC Chair to CNN: Christie should stay at RGA

Washington (CNN) – Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Preibus says New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie should remain in his job as chairman of the Republican Governors Association, pushing back on a call from Virginia’s losing GOP gubernatorial candidate for Christie to step down.

“No, not at all,” Preibus told CNN in response to whether he agrees with Ken Cuccinelli’s demand that Christie quit the RGA.

RNC putting Biden in 2016 spotlight, again

Washington (CNN) - The Republican National Committee is once again setting its sights on Vice President Joe Biden.

The party committee Monday put out an email and research brief release, "A Walk Down Biden's Memory Lane," which highlights news reports of some of the gaffes from the Vice President's failed bid for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination. It's the third time since August that the RNC has attacked Biden's future presidential aspirations.

Las Vegas makes formal bid to host 2016 RNC

(CNN) - What happens in Vegas … goes to the White House?

That's what the Nevada Host Committee, Inc. is hoping. The group has made a formal bid to bring the 2016 Republican National Convention to Las Vegas.

It may seem early to bid for a convention scheduled for three years from now but hosting a national convention is a major undertaking for any city, no matter how well equipped. The Republican National Committee usually makes its choice two years in advance.

Do you think Obama's doing a good job?

Washington (CNN) - As President Barack Obama hit the road Thursday and Friday for a campaign-esque bus tour, the Republican National Committee fired off an email to reporters titled "Lame Speech, Lame Duck."

While it's the RNC's job, as the party committee of the party not controlling the White House, to criticize the president, it's true that Obama's poll numbers are nothing to brag about. But it's also a fact that the president's standing in public opinion still soars above that of Congress and the Republican Party.

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.
