|Former U.S. Congressman J.C. Watts will head up the Insight initiative|
Mr. Watts discusses the reasons for starting the Insight initiative: "The animating idea is that the GOP must do more than recruit minority candidates in order to improve outreach. 'It’s really not a matter of having African-American or Hispanic or Asian or Native American candidates or female candidates,' Watts told POLITICO in an interview. 'We cheapen the accomplishments of a Tim Scott when we as a party say, ‘Oh, look at Tim Scott!’ Or, ‘Look at J.C. Watts!’ Or, ‘Look at Colin Powell.’....There’s a lot of work that needs to be done to connect the dots.'
UPDATE: According to Move-On.org, Sen. Tim Scott is an honorary co-chairman.
