Priebus: RNC ‘focusing in on Hillary Clinton’

The Republican National Committee is already digging up dirt on potential 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, according to RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.

During an appearance Wednesday evening on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, Hewitt pressed Preibus on the amount of attention the Republican committee has been paying to a possible Clinton presidential nomination.

“Our research shop, along with America Rising, has been focusing in on Hillary Clinton, but I agree with you that there needs to be more of a focus,” Priebus said.

He explained that currently the major focus is getting through the midterms, but noted that Clinton does remain a topic that deserves attention.

“I think that there’s a lot of rough stuff coming out on Hillary that you know, it doesn’t just come out of thin air. It comes from somewhere. And sometimes, it comes from us, and sometimes, it comes from other groups,” he said.

“But I think you’re right, I think we have to be very aggressive on what she’s done or hasn’t done,” Priebus continued. “And the things that she is famous for, like a botched healthcare rollout in the nineties and Benghazi and the things that she is involved with that went obviously pretty badly, we need to focus in on.”

Clinton has been coy about her future plans, but polls have shown her easily winning the Democratic nomination should she decide to run.
