ICYMI: Press Conference Call With RNC Chairman Priebus & FL GOP Chairman Bitner On RNC Ad Buy In FL

- July 27, 2011

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus

“Since the president took office Floridians have seen the national debt increase by 3.7 trillion dollars and that’s because of the failed policies like an $831 billion stimulus package that’s failed to create jobs or the monstrosity of ObamaCare which cost $2.6 trillion dollars … at a time that we can’t even afford to pay our most basic bills …

“The perennial battleground of Florida provided some of the worst polling news for Obama in July. And a Sunshine State News poll showed that only 38 percent of likely voters in Florida approve of the job the president has done. And while suffering from the fifth highest state unemployment rate in the country, only 14 percent of voters surveyed there felt the economy had improved in the last year and 56 percent of Floridians said the economy has gotten worse.

“This new ad paints a very bleak and chilling picture of what things will look like after eight years of the president’s failed policies and the Obama Economy. Certainly a country that has to surrender its sovereignty to its bond holders can’t guarantee prosperity or freedom to anybody.

“The president’s record speaks for itself; we all know these numbers: two and a half million jobs lost, the largest deficit in history, 14.3 trillion in national debt. And these aren’t just numbers – these are families, children, grandchildren, across Florida and the rest of the country and it’s about our nation’s financial viability.

“In Florida, Hispanic voters make up a crucial part of the electorate. Nationally, President Obama’s job approval rating among Hispanics has fallen by 24 points since his inauguration based on Gallup’s weekly data. With Hispanics enduring unemployment rates much higher than the national average at 11.6 percent, it’s clear that this president’s failed economic policies have Hispanic voters looking for a change in direction …”

Florida GOP Chairman Dave Bitner:

“Chairman, I’ll be very brief but I just want to say thank you for including Florida. Every day here I meet people that say, ‘What are you guys doing to help us? Are you making sure that our voter base is energized … and that we are trying to let people know just how difficult things are for the average family here in Florida?’… And I applaud you and I thank you for doing that here in Florida.”
