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.FULL STORY
(CNN) -- Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said while the party's committee is not an organization to recommend policy changes to Congress, he believes messaging plays an important role and anticipates a more 'granular' approach to presenting GOP policies.
Priebus, who told RNC members in a letter last week he would seek re-election as the committee's leader, has said his party is planning an "autopsy" to locate areas where the GOP struggled to gain support in last month's elections.
(CNN) - Republicans provided more details Monday of their effort to determine what went wrong in last month's election, which saw the GOP lose both the race for the White House and seats in the House and Senate.
Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus, who last month said his party was planning an "autopsy" to locate problem areas, said the effort would "recommend a plan to further ensure Republicans are victorious in 2013, 2014, 2016 and beyond."
(CNN) – Friday's jobs report, which showed unemployment falling to its lowest point since 2008, was still indication that President Barack Obama's economic policies were failing, according to Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus.
"While a downtick in the unemployment rate is welcome news, too many families are still falling behind and unemployment remains painfully high," Priebus said in a statement sent an hour after the jobs report was released. During the presidential race, Republican reaction to negative jobs reports was almost instantaneous.
Washington (CNN) – Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus formally launched his re-election campaign Thursday in a letter and YouTube video sent to the 168-member committee.
In the letter, provided to CNN by a GOP source, Priebus touts his fundraising success since taking over the committee and its $24 million debt burden in early 2011.
(CNN) - The prospect of former congressman J.C. Watts leading the Republican National Committee was met with chuckles by members of the organization Monday, who said that current chairman Reince Priebus is all-but-guaranteed to be re-elected to his post next month.
Watts, a former Oklahoma congressman who for a time in the 1990s was the only African-American Republican serving in the U.S. House, told Politico over the weekend that he is being "encouraged" by Republicans to seek the RNC chairmanship.
(CNN) – Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, announced Tuesday the party will holds its annual winter meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina, the same city where Democrats gathered for their national convention in September.
At the RNC meeting in January, the group will vote on the chairmanship position. Priebus has told members he intends to run for another term, and sources say he will likely win re-election despite the party's losses this cycle.
(CNN) – Two party rivals who often go head-to-head are now going bald-—together.
Top spokesmen for the Republican National Committee and Democratic National Committee agreed to shave their heads on live television Sunday in a show of bipartisan support for charity.
Washington (CNN) – As a major review by the Republican National Committee of what went wrong, and right, in the 2012 election gets underway, we may soon learn if the party committee's chairman will run for a second term.
RNC officials tell CNN that by the end of next week Reince Preibus will probably make a decision on whether he runs or not for another two years as chairman of the party committee. The RNC will hold its election for chairman in January.
(CNN) – While President Barack Obama's campaign outraised Mitt Romney's team last month for the first time since April, records show the Republican National Committee still has an advantage over its Democratic counterpart.
