Republicans cannot find someone to lead them in The House of Representatives, so chances of them getting someone to lead the country in 2016 is bleak… in my view. But I’m not the only one feeling that way. Apparently, the Chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC) feels the same way.
In an interview with The Washington Examiner, Reince Priebus explained his party’s plight, saying that they are “cooked” if Republican cannot win in 2016!
“Our job as a national party is to elect Republicans, and it generally means House, Senate, presidential,” Priebus said. “We’re viewed in a presidential year as the presidential committee that is responsible for helping elect the president, but at the same time, we have a responsibility to help pay for the ground operation in every targeted U.S. Senate races and the targeted Congressional races as well, so it is our job to do all three.”
Priebus went on to say that, while he has had success at getting Republicans elected to the House and Senate in midterm elections, the White House has proven more difficult.
“We’re seeing more and more that if you don’t hold the White House, it’s very difficult to govern in this country — especially in Washington D.C.” Priebus explained.
“So I think that — I do think that we’re cooked as a party for quite a while as a party if we don’t win in 2016. So I do think that it’s going to be hard to dig out of something like that,” he added.0
