RNC Chairman: Fewer Debates Will Strengthen Our Party | The Political Side of Things | Scoop.it
BURLINGAME, Calif. (AP) — Planned changes to the Republican Party's presidential selection process are part of a rebuilding process that will strengthen the GOP brand and hopefully make its presidential nominee more competitive in 2016, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus told California Republicans on Friday, calling the GOP's current primary process "a complete disaster."

Priebus said shortening the primary process by moving up the national convention at which the nominee is typically selected to June and cutting the number of debates are "not an establishment takeover. This is using your brain. Everything's not a conspiracy."

Voters hate Washington and want a fresh-faced outsider to fix it. Sound familiar?
Ken Feltman's insight:

This anger at Washington is why the Tea Party groups are popular as well as why Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden may have problems. Is it time for a governor?
