WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chairman Sharon Day released the following statement regarding the results of the New York primary:
“Today, New York primary voters went to the polls to make their voices heard,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “I congratulate Mitt Romney on this important victory as our party begins coalescing around a candidate to take on President Obama in November.
“In New York and across America, families are struggling under the policies of President Obama. For far too many Americans today, it is a challenge just to find work, fill up the gas tank, or even put food on the table.
“The Obama presidency has clearly taken the country in the wrong direction. Instead of increased prosperity and opportunity, he’s produced massive debt and more government.”
“With a record of broken promises and failed policies, President Obama is frantically running away from his record,” said Co-Chairman Sharon Day. “As we move toward the General Election, he will attempt to make the race about anything other than the last three years.
“But this election is a referendum on President Obama, and even as he attempts to distract from that fact, Republicans will continue to offer substantive solutions to the problems facing the nation. We cannot afford four more years of Barack Obama, and in November we will have the chance to change direction and send a Republican to the White House.”
