New face of GOP: Diversity

SAN DIEGO, California (CNN) – At the annual conference of the Republican Governors Association, a diverse new group of governors announced they will redefine the image and message of the Grand Old Party.

"They're all kind of Americans, they're all kind of races, creeds, colors, religions, who understand that a free market economy, smaller government, lower taxes, less spending, rational regulation – that's the way to grow the economy," Mississippi governor and potential 2012 presidential candidate Haley Barbour told CNN. "They all are united by what they believe in, and they're the right policies."
