Comprehensive immigration reform is all but officially dead, which means it must be time for a new coat of paint for the RNC.
RNC chairman and woman’s healthcare product Reince Priebus announced today that he is appointing “Hispanic engagement staff” in seven states. For outreach.
“Today’s announcement is unprecedented,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said in a release. “This off-cycle effort will ensure our message of ‘opportunity for all’ reaches voters. We are building a ground game that will allow us to compete for every voter and will outlast any one cycle or campaign. I’m certain with these early and unprecedented investments we can achieve Republican victories up and down the ballot now and for years to come.”
The only thing unprecedented about this announcement is the RNC’s audacity to seek votes from people whom they assume are idiots.
No ground game or focus-tested messaging is going to erase legislative history or the ugly words of Iowa congressman and secret border control agent Steve King.
If the last several months have taught us anything, it’s that the Republican primary field in 2016 will likely be even more unhinged than it was in either 2012 or 2008.
