The Republican Party is focusing on cutting government spending as a key theme for the 2010 Congressional elections.
The Washington Times reported that Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele is behind the rally for fiscal conservatism.
Steele and other party leaders want to prevent intraparty battles, and plan on focusing on issues people are talking about like spending, jobs, big government and taxes.
California GOP Chairman Ron Nehring discussed the major party issues with the Washington Times.
"The keys issues are fiscal conservatism" to fight the Democrats' "huge deficits and spending," he said. "If we stick to that message, we are going to be united."
Massachusetts GOP Chairman Jennifer A. Nassour said she wants to ensure that the GOP is "best positioned to pick off their support."
"If I had to focus on the issues we should run on next year," they would be "spending, jobs, big government and taxes. That's what people are talking about," she said.
