Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus declared in an exclusive Newsmax TV interview that the GOP of the future is going to be larger, better organized, proactive, financially strong and diverse.
“In order for us to compete, our team, whether it be the RNC, whether it be soft money, whoever it ends up becoming or joining in a collaborative effort, we can agree that it’s … not just going to be a couple of people,” Priebus, who took over the chairmanship in January 2011, tells Newsmax.
“We may need hundreds of people. We may need hundreds of people year after year after year — and not just doing registration and not just convincing, but going to community events, going to swearing-in ceremonies, coming up with a system that can use metrics to measure how many voters we did sign up, how many events did we go to — do we have a table at every event possible in this community? That’s what I’m talking about.
“And whether it be that, African-American communities, Asian communities, that’s where we’re heading — and that’s where you’re going to see the RNC in the future.”

Urgent: Should Obamacare Be Repealed? Vote Here Now!
It is about time to hear these words. We have to become a presence in the communities; we can't wait for the election to role around and then try to tell people we are here. Further, they do need to utilize the internet to a better advantage. There needs to be Facebook pages, etc. that keep the RNC active and alive in the minds of people and to attract the younger voters. But I would like to point out that it is not limited to the younger, regardless of what someone might thing, there are a large percentage of 60 and over that use Facebook, too. It is used by all ages; families are using it to communicate with each other, etc. So, find a way, as have the Democrats, to get the message out to the people, help them learn more of the truth about the Republican Party.
