“We want to build a massive party that’s exciting, that smiles, has a good message across America, and that’s what you’re going to see,” Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus told reporters at a news conference on Friday shortly after he was re-elected to another two year term.

Priebus may be following the advice of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich who told his fellow Republicans at the same gathering on Thursday to “learn to be a happy party” and to try to be “cheerful and persistent.” …

“It doesn’t matter where you live, who you are, what you look like, or what your last name is,” Priebus said on Friday, “because we will be a party for everyone, everywhere.”
