    Paying Tribute to our Constitution

    The Constitution is the basis of our government and the cornerstone of our free society. As we mark the 226th anniversary of its adoption today, it’s worth recalling the words of James Madison, its principal author and Founding Father. In 1829 he wrote that, “the happy Union of these States is a wonder: their Constitution a miracle: their example the hope of Liberty throughout the world.” | Read More »

    RNC Launches To Inform Voters, Hold 2014 Democrats Accountable

    Today at the RNC, we are launching, to provide voters with the facts on ObamaCare in the week leading up to the October 1 implementation deadline. Ahead of the 2014 midterms, Democrats who voted for and supported ObamaCare are up for reelection. These Democrats are doubling down on their support for this costly healthcare law even as they watch news stories about how ObamaCare is hurting their | Read More »

    Today RNC Votes For Fair Debates

    Last week I sent letters to NBC and CNN informing them that if they did not abandon plans to run pro-Hillary productions ahead of her expected presidential campaign, the RNC would vote to exclude the networks from Republican presidential primary debates in the 2016 cycle. Today we will vote. Now is the time to call out media bias and to ensure fair debates for our | Read More »

    The RNC: In Communities and There to Stay

    Back in January, I shared with RedState my vision for the RNC’s field operation and some of the lessons we had learned from the 2012 election: As a party, we must recognize that we live in an era of permanent politics. We must stop living nominee-to-nominee, campaign to campaign. As we saw this election, our opponent benefited from a multi-year head-start. Now is the time | Read More »

    CNN and NBC Must #DumptheDocs

    The liberal media is on notice: If you’re in the business of spending millions to promote Hillary Clinton, you will not take part in Republicans’ primary debates in the 2016 presidential election. On Monday, I sent letters to NBC and CNN informing them that the RNC will not sanction any primary debates they sponsor if they do not cancel their plans to promote Hillary Clinton. | Read More »

    Embassy Sweets: Obama Rewards Mega-Donors With Ambassadorships

    Last week, President Obama announced his nomination of Caroline Kennedy to be U.S. ambassador to Japan. Upon hearing the news, you might have found yourself wondering, “Does Caroline Kennedy speak Japanese?” Or “When did she become an expert in U.S.-Japanese relations?” The truth is she doesn’t speak Japanese and she has no expertise in Asian politics. That’s not to criticize the ambassador-to-be. She’s just part | Read More »

    A Verdict Doesn’t End the Gosnell Story

    The horrors that unfolded in the clinic of Dr. Kermit Gosnell have rightly shocked and appalled the nation. Such were the atrocities committed in his office that even abortion advocates have recoiled in horror. And today, a Philadelphia jury finally brought Dr. Gosnell to justice, finding him guilty of first degree murder. This monstrous individual–to call him a doctor is no longer fitting–got what he | Read More »

    Keep Shouting: “Taxed Enough Already”

    It’s Tax Day, and across the country as hardworking Americans surrender a chunk of their paychecks to the federal government, many are also standing up to give the government a piece of their minds. In Washington, D.C., in state capitals, in big cities and small towns, Tax Day Tea Party rallies are sounding a refrain that we must keep shouting: “Taxed Enough Already.” That cry | Read More »

    Media Covers up Democrat-Backed Planned Parenthood’s Support for Infanticide

    For almost as long as there have been two parties, there have been accusations of mainstream media bias. Conservatives know it’s real. Liberals insist it’s imagined. Bias is evident not only in how events are covered but also in what is covered—and more importantly what is not covered. Consider two events from last week. First, in North Dakota the governor signed into law bills that | Read More »

    Renew, Grow, Win

    Today the Republican National Committee is gathered in Charlotte, North Carolina, where we are setting the party’s course for the next two years and beyond. Our efforts are focused on three main goals: renewing our party, growing our ranks, and winning more elections. There is one clear, overriding lesson from November: we didn’t have enough voters. So, we have to find more supporters. We have | Read More »
