Look for duels today between Republican National Committee chair Reince Priebus and Democratic National Committee chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz D-Fl.
A year ago, in the wake of the defeat of Mitt Romney and other GOP candidates, Priebus commissioned what he called “the Growth and Opportunity Project report — a comprehensive post-2012 election review,” also known as the “autopsy report.”
This week, Priebus is touting the progress the RNC has made, writing in a CNN opinion column, “Today, I can report that we’ve fundamentally reshaped the way we do business,” by improving field resources, outreach to minorities, cutting back on presidential primary debates and bolstering data tools.
Priebus is briefing reporters in Washington this morning. After that, the Wasserman Schultz is hosting a rebuttal press conference at the National Press Club followed by a conference call to “discuss the failure of the GOP Autopsy Report on its one-year anniversary, the same day the new face of the Republican Party, Ted Cruz, travels to Iowa.”
