The contrast between New Hampshires two candidates for U.S. Senate couldnt have been clearer this past weekend. In one town, Senator Jeanne Shaheen spoke to the International Brotherhood Of Electrical Workers over a pancake breakfast, and in another, former Senator Scott Brown received a rowdy and enthusiastic reception at a tailgate organized by College Republicans at the University of New Hampshire.
As I watched Chairman Priebus present the Growth and Opportunity Project one year ago, I could not help but be impressed by his courage in releasing its sobering findings and strong recommendations in the most glaring of spotlights: the National Press Club. Right in the lion’s den, the RNC had just laid bare our Party’s weaknesses and goals for the future for the entire world to see. We needed this public moment of vulnerability, however, and one year later, it is even more apparent to me why.
