Now that the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is almost a month past, this might be a good time for Politisite readers to hear some of the more personal perspectives that were offered by some prominent CPAC attendees. Over the next week or so, I’ll post some of the interviews that were conducted at CPAC over March 14th-16th. Our second Politisite – ”Echoes of CPAC” interview will be with Ken Blackwell, former Ohio Secretary of State and now a Senior Fellow at the Family Research Council. NOTE: This interview was conducted just a few days before the Republican National Committee released its "Growth & Opportunity Report." By Kevin Williams KW: As far as where we are going from the 2012 Elections, as far as diversity within in the [...]
LOS ANGELES, CA—RNC Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement regarding rules of the Republican Party as voted on at the RNC Spring Meeting in Los Angeles, CA: “During the general session at the RNC Spring Meeting, the membership overwhelmingly voted to empower the state parties and grassroots in the selection of delegates,” said Chairman Reince Priebus. “We all agree the grassroots are the center of this party and are vital to winning elections. This change makes clear that the grassroots will pick their delegates and that presidential candidates can neither veto delegates nor unseat delegates. This was a win for both delegates and candidates by unifying our party behind this delegate allocation process.” Rule 16 as passed at convention resolved a [...]
By Kevin Williams The 168 members of the Republican National Committee (RNC) have officially started their winter meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina, where they will elect the party's chairman and co-chairman. Indeed, many Republicans and conservatives around the country are sure to be nervously glued to C-SPAN or their desktop computers over the next two days, hoping for clear indications of the party's future. While many of their fellow Americans may be tuned out or turned off from politics after our past election, those of us who continue to pay close attention to national politics realize that this RNC chairman election will be important to the country's political future. Why? Because while the RNC's winter meeting will be full of politicking for positions, prestige and [...]
by Joe Keck Yes, that's the big question. The Republican National Convention got off the ground yesterday and I'm sure everyone is wondering who was the most impressive. I think I can answer that. Who indeed, was the sexiest female speaker of the night? It was close, but I think Sher Valenzuela, with those black horn-rimmed glasses, had to be the . . . Just kidding. I suppose we can stay away from the fluff for the time being, and get to the substance of this year's Republican National Convention. And since we're not Democrats, that would be policy. Note that every speaker targeted Obama's administrating, not his person. They talked about how his policies were lacking, how his liberal ideas were driving this country into debt, despair, even poverty. All legitimate if [...]

Seems the national giving to political parties and candidates has made a telling shift. Romney and The RNC have out-raised Obama and the DNC. Seems the fundraiser-in- Chief has met his match Mitt Romney and the RNC raised $76.8 million in May, easily outpacing $60 million from President Obama’s campaign and the DNC. With outside conservative groups alone already outspending the Obama campaign in swing states and Democrats begging donors for help, the money race is tilting quickly toward the GOP. Romney and the RNC now have $107 million cash on hand, with $12 million of their monthly haul coming from donations less than $250. via Romney/RNC Outraise Obama/DNC With Huge $76.8 Million Haul | TPM Livewire.
WASHINGTON - Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on the May jobs report: "Today's extremely troubling jobs report proves yet again that President Obama's policies simply are not working and that he has failed to live up to the promise of his presidency. In early 2009, he promised to fix the economy in three years, and he promised the unemployment rate would be below six percent by now," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. "Now President Obama is running away from his own words, attempting to distract voters by attacking free enterprise. This same hostility toward the private sector is the very reason our economy remains unacceptably weak. "As President Obama jets off to multiple campaign fundraisers today, families across America [...]

"Now we learn that the Buffett tax the Senate is expected to vote on early next week will make the deficit worse. That's because both Mr. Obama and Senate Democrats have made it clear that their new 'fairness' tax is to offset the revenue loss from another provision related to the Alternative Minimum Tax." (Editorial, "The Buffett Tax Loss," The Wall Street Journal, 4/13/12) According To The Joint Committee On Taxation, The Senate Bill Will Add $793.3 Billion To The Deficit.
