Candidates Compete for RNC Chairmanship

Ad Feedback

The Republican Party is looking for a new direction after the losses it experienced in the last election.

Six candidates are competing to head-up the Grand Old Party as the next Republican National Committee chairman.

On Monday, the candidates debated how to energize the party by broadening their base, and returning to their basic principles.

"We are looked at, to some degree, as a party that is not friendly towards minorities," said RNC chair candidate Saul Anuzis. "And I think we have to make sure that we go out and reach out and walk into those communities and talk to people and make them understand that it's not just only a whites-only party that the Republican Party is all about."

Michael Steele is another RNC chair candidate.

"You make sure that people appreciate what this cause has always been about: the individual, the freedoms, the choices, the responsibilities, the opportunities, to strike whatever dream you want for yourself," he explained.

With no clear front-runner in the race, it is still unknown who will win the RNC chairmanship.

The delegates will vote Jan. 28.
