Armistead Analyzes GOP 2012 National Failure

March 26, 2013

By Brandon Moseley
Alabama Political Reporter

This time last year the 2012 Presidential election appeared to be trending toward Republicans.  Unemployment had been north of 8% for just about all of Obama’s presidency.  Few Americans can remember a weaker economic recovery, the national debt was spiraling out of control, the President’s personal popularity was high but polls showed that his job approval numbers were trending down and the President’s signature legislation (Obamacare) remained politically unpopular.  The Republican Party was coalescing behind a nationally known moderate Governor with a picture perfect family and with the business skills to turn around a struggling corporation and presumably the American economy.  The Republican had spent four years battling to achieve fundraising parity with the Obama campaigning machine and they raised more money than any Republican campaign had ever dreamed of raising.  There was no credible Libertarian or independent candidacy to divide the GOP electorate.  It all appeared to translate to an easy (if hard fought) victory…….then everything went horribly wrong for the GOP.  Chairman Priebus and the GOP remain haunted by what went so wrong with that election.

Alabama RNC Members Endorse Chairman Reince Priebus: Fundraising, Messaging and Trust cited

January 14, 2013

Staff Report

BIRMINGHAM, Ala – Recently, the three members of the Republican National Committee who represent the state of Alabama endorsed RNC Chairman Reince Priebus as he seeks his second term as Chairman of the Republican National Committee.

“When Reince Priebus was first elected Chairman of the RNC almost two years ago, he took over an organization that was 24 million dollars in debt and that had lost the trust and respect of both major donors and grassroots donors alike,” stated Bill Armistead, Chairman of the Alabama Republican Party.  “After two years, the RNC is back in the black and donors around the country at every level have trust in the management of the RNC once more.  That is due in large part to the personal commitment of Chairman Priebus to reach out and earn their trust back,” continued Armistead.
