RNC Chairman: Obama Has Not Kept Promises
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus (ryns PREE’-bus) says his party needs to remind voters that President Barack Obama has not kept his promise to improve the nation’s economy.
Preibus says Obama does a good job of giving speeches, but that doesn’t change the fact that unemployment remains above 8 percent and the national debt is too high.
He says the plan at this week’s GOP convention is to tell the story of Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.
Tropical storm Isaac has forced planners to delay the start of the convention, but Preibus says all the speakers who were set to address delegates Monday will be absorbed into the schedule during the rest of the week.
Preibus made his comments on “CBS This Morning” and NBC’s “Today” show.
