I think that it’s admirable that Priebus is going to meet with black republicans in Atlanta but he also needs to meet with minority democrats in states that we do not have a footprint. Georgia has been voting republican for a while now…..we need to have a Northern Strategy along with a East and West Strategy.
A spokesman for the Republican National Committee said the party chairman will be holding an “African-American engagement and listening session.” Preibus will be meeting with business owners and community leaders across the state – as part of his attempt to diagnose the GOP’s defeat in the 2012 presidential contest.
Invitations to meet with Priebus were issued to black Republicans across the state. “This isn’t a Republican party meeting. This is the chairman’s office reaching outside the confines of the GOP, to reach out to some folks,” said Ashley Bell, the former Hall County commissioner who lost his seat not long after switching to the Republican party. Bell issued the invitations.[fbcomments]
