PHILADELPHIA – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on the first day of the Democrat National Convention:
“This felt more like a convention for Bernie Sanders than for Hillary Clinton, with many of his supporters refusing to embrace her candidacy and the convention floor descending into chaos for most of the day,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “Throughout this primary, a 74-year old socialist from Vermont has encouraged grassroots Democrats to reject Hillary Clinton’s pay-to-play politics and cronyism, and the deep division that has fostered was on full display.
“Pointing to growing wealth inequality, millions stuck in poverty, and stagnant wages under President Obama, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders made the case for why we can’t have four more years of the same failed policies under Hillary Clinton. Only Donald Trump and Mike Pence can bring the change our country so desperately needs, and get our economy working for all Americans.”
