To appeal to more voters, party shouldn’t alienate them

RE “GOP to spend $10m to gain minorities” (Page A6, March 18): It is refreshing to know that the Republican Party is examining itself in order to appeal to — well, to the 47 percent of the people who supposedly do not contribute to the good of the country. Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said that the effort “will include hundreds of people — paid — across the country, from coast to coast, in Hispanic, African-American, Asian communities talking about our party, talking about our brand, talking about what we believe in.”

Talking about what they believe in is what cost Mitt Romney the 2012 election.
