PHILADELPHIA -- Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on the third night of the Democrat National Convention:
“Tonight reinforced that the Hillary Clinton, Tim Kaine ticket is nothing more than two career DC insiders who want nothing more than to continue the failed Democrat status quo.” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “In an election year when voters are eager to get rid of a rigged system which puts Washington first, Democrats have gone all in for unprincipled flip-floppers who have spent years embracing pay-to-play politics and unchecked cronyism. Americans have had enough of out-of-touch career politicians taking care of their own instead of the American people, but that is exactly what the Clinton-Kaine ticket and the Democrat Party represents.
“President Obama was elected to the White House with voters demanding change, and fittingly, that is how he will leave. After coming into office promising to transcend politics, tonight he spent more time in his final major address attacking Republicans, than discussing key issues like trade, terrorism, or his failed legacy in the Middle East. The fact that President Obama is betting his legacy on having a Democrat successor shows what a weak and divisive leader he has been. Our country cannot afford four more years like the last eight, which have left us less prosperous, less safe, and less free. The Trump-Pence ticket will put America first and bring back the prosperity and security our country deserves.”
