From The Washington Examiner, about the moderate-conservative Republican's recent comments: "Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Monday released a comprehensive report that pledged big changes to broaden the party by attracting minorities, gays and women, but he faces skepticism from those who fear the party is shifting away from its conservative roots. Among the doubters is former RNC Chairman Michael Steele, a moderate who pushed minority and youth outreach during his tenure at the party's helm but says he faced a wall of resistance from party officials. 'Reince seems to think parroting me or creating another top-down structure is somehow going to lead to disaffected voters turning to the party,' Steele told The Washington Examiner. 'If this was such a priority for him or anyone else at the RNC, then why wasn't it in 2012?"
