Georgia GOP Rebrand Report
A year ago, RNC Chair Reince Priebus spoke at the National Press Club and laid out a plan to
“rebrand”
 the Republican Party and reach out to constituencies who rejected the GOP during the 2012 elections. But a year later, all the Republican Party has gotten is a year older. No amount of
“outreach staff” and trainings to
teach candidates on how to speak to constituencies can change
the fact that the GOP’s policy and rhetoric are
offensive
 — 
and often dangerous
 — 
to women,  people of color, the LGBT community and young people.
Unfortunately, too many examples of this failed rebrand originated from right here in Georgia
. The Georgia Republican Party’s biggest problem has never been a
lack of trainings or how they package their message. Their biggest problem is who they are, what they believe, what they say, and how they govern.
The following are examples of the
Republican Party’s failed rebranding
in Georgia over the twelve months s
ince the GOP “Autopsy Report.”
 
Georgia Congressman and US Senate candidate Jack Kingston suggested poor children who rely on school lunch programs should sweep the floors 
saying, "But one of the things I’ve talked to the secretary of agriculture about: Why don’t you have the kids pay a dime, pay a nickel to instill
in them that there is, in fact, no such thing as a free lunch? Or maybe sweep the floor of the
cafeteria… think what we would gain as a society in getting people – 
getting the myth out of their head that there is such a thing as a free lunch."
“[
W]e need to go back into the schools at a very early age, maybe at the grade school level and have a class for the young girls and have a class for the young boys and say:
This is what’s
important.
This is what a father does that’s maybe a little different, maybe a little bit better than
the talents a mom has in a certain area. And same thing for the young girls, that this is what a mom does and this is
what’s important from the standpoint of that union, which we call
marriage."
 – 
 Georgia Congressman and US
 
Senate candidate Phil Gingrey 
 
Georgia Congressmen and US Senate candidates Paul Broun, Phil Gingrey and Jack Kingston voted to block  the Paycheck Fairness Act.  Georgia US Senate candidate Karen Handel -
“We must, must get the fed out of the way when it
comes to educating our children.
 Georgia Congressman and US Senate candidate Paul Broun introduced a personhood bill
 – 
 – 
 that specifies that a "one-celled human embryo," even before it implants in the uterus to create a  pregnancy, should be granted "all the legal and constitutional attributes and privileges of  personhood" though similar legislation has been rejected by voters in multiple states because legal experts have pointed out that it could outlaw some forms of birth control and in vitro fertilization as well as criminalize abortion at all stages. Georgia Congressmen and US Senate candidates Phil Gingrey and Jack Kingston voted to
 Georgia Congressman and US Senate candidate Paul Broun  pulled his support of a bill that
would restrict a women’s right to choose because exceptions for rape and incest were added to
the bill. Georgia US Senate candidate David Perdue -
“I don’t see education in the Constitution.”
 Georgia Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens said that pre-existing conditions were the same
as having a car accident that’s “your fault.”
“Lord, I’m going to get in trouble over this, but it is not natural for two women or two men to be married… If it was
 
natural, they would have the equipment to have a sexual relationship.” –
