Why the GOP Is Stepping Up in Detroit - Sen. Rand Paul and Reince Priebus - POLITICO Magazine: "Sen. Paul spoke at the office’s opening and later talked with community leaders from the Detroit area about how to help cities in need of economic growth. Chairman Priebus also recently traveled to Detroit for a roundtable with local business leaders. While there, he announced the RNC’s hiring of Wayne Bradley as state director of African-American engagement and the formation of the Michigan Black Advisory Council.
Critics might question our efforts, but as Republicans we believe in fighting for individual freedoms and equal opportunity for all, so we will listen to all voters in all neighborhoods, towns and cities. If a political party wants to have an impact, it can’t be in the business of going only where it already has supporters. It should be in the business of going where it can lend its support to important causes and continue to earn the trust of voters in return."
