  •  I notice that the "new" Republican plan (7+ / 0-)

    for minority outreach doesn't include not passing racist Voter Supperssion Laws and not rigging the presidential Electoral Voting system in Republican held states.

    In fact, Republicans in PA and Michigan already have bills in the hopper that will rig the presidential Electoral Vote in their states for the Republican candidate. They're just waiting for the next lame duck session to pass them.

    These bills are designed to help Republicans win presidential elections by making the votes of minorities and the poor count for less than they do now.

    RNC's Priebus plots a new way forward for his party

    When it comes to issues, one of the document's biggest surprises is that it explicitly calls on Republican policymakers to "embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform," a policy many, if not most, congressional Republicans remain deeply skeptical of.

    On a related note, Priebus seems eager, if not desperate, to expand the party's outreach to minority communities, and he committed this morning to an initial $10 million investment. Of course, what the RNC will tell these communities remains something of a mystery -- no amount of outreach can overcome GOP policy goals such as "self deportation" and "the most sweeping voting restrictions since Jim Crow."
