Compilation o Recommendations
in December 2012,
 Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus announced the Growth and OpportunityProject. As the co-chairs o the project, we were charged with making recommendations andassisting in putting together a plan to grow the Party and improve Republican campaigns.We were asked to dig deep to provide an honest review o the 2012 election cycle and apath orward or the Republican Party to ensure success in winning more elections. As requested by Chairman Priebus, we made recommendations in the ollowing areas:1. Messaging2. Demographic Partners3. Campaign Mechanics4. Friends and Allies (Third Party Groups)5. Fundraising6. Campaign Finance7. Primary ProcessWe met with, or spoke to more than 2,600 people, both outside Washington and insidethe Beltway. We spoke to voters, technical experts, private sector ocials, Party members,and elected oce holders. We sought out Republicans rom all ideological backgrounds.We convened in-depth ocus groups with voters in Iowa and Ohio who used to call themselvesRepublicans, but who let the Party because they thought we weren’t conservative enough orbecause we were too conservative. We conducted a poll among 2,000 Republican Hispanicvoters. We surveyed political practitioners at the state and national level and also conducteda survey o GOP pollsters. We consulted with independent pollsters. And more than 36,000individuals participated in our online survey to determine priorities and to identiy additionalvolunteers or the Party.We encourage every Republican to read the report and review our ndings. Our Party hasan incredible opportunity on our hands, but we must seize it enthusiastically. We are condent these recommendations and others shared with the Chairman can lead to many victoriouscampaigns or our party. We look orward to joining our ellow Republicans in the work ahead.Onward to Victory,Henry BarbourSally Bradshaw Ari FleischerZori FonalledasGlenn McCall
