The Hill highlight's RNC chairman Reince Priebus's vow to change the party's performance with minority voters: "Reince Priebus is staking his legacy as Republican National Committee chairman on improving the party's performance with minority voters. 'I just sort of reached a boiling point on the issue,' Priebus told The Hill in an interview at RNC headquarters on Friday. 'I want to fix these problems.'"
The article continues about the conservative Republican leader's vow: "Priebus spoke shortly after an RNC event saluting 'black Republican trailblazers' at the Capitol Hill Press Club. Speaking to a room full of predominantly black businessmen, community leaders, party activists and dignitaries, Priebus said he was committed to 'building long term, lasting, genuine, and authentic relationships' in places where the Republican Party 'just hasn’t been.' 'We’re here because we know we need to grow our party,' Priebus told the group. 'We must take our message to every neighborhood and every community, and as we know, we’ve got a lot of ground to make up with the black community.'"
Booker Rising response: We've heard this talk many times before from RNC honchos. When are we gonna see some real action and resources in the streets & on airwaves to putting this claim to work?
