Renee Amoore Announces Candidacy for RNC Co-Chair…
(HARRISBURG, PA, December 23, 2008) Renee Amoore, Deputy Chair of the Republican Party of Pennsylvania, officially announced her candidacy for Republican National Committee (RNC) Co-Chair in a letter to members of that committee.”As Republican leaders, we all have a pretty good idea of what we need to do to get our Party back to its winning ways. We need to return to the party basics that allowed Republican leaders to dominate our nation’s governing structure for most of the last twenty-five years,” said Amoore in her announcement letter.
Amoore has served as the Deputy Chair of the Republican Party of Pennsylvania for the last twelve years and has acted as the Director since 1999 of the RNC’s National New Majority Council, the main vehicle for attracting minorities to the Republican Party.
As a Republican strategist focused on minority issues, Amoore has been in high demand from media outlets appearing on television networks CNN, Fox News, ABC, and the BBC. She hosts her own radio show on WURD in Philadelphia, and has addressed the Republican National Convention three times (2000, 2004, and 2008).
As the RNC Co-chair, Amoore states that her focus will be to work closely with the RNC Chair to meet priorities established for the Republican Party, to gather ideas and input from rank and file Republicans, to “put our Party back on track,” to engage the media, and to provide leadership to help the party gain “new campaign” tactical capabilities.
“We need our Washington leaders to get back to basic principles - the Republican conservative principles that have gained the trust of Americans since the presidency of Ronald Reagan,” added Amoore.
“Cutting taxes, standing for smaller government, moving towards a balanced federal budget, support for families, embracing and spreading economic opportunity, and protecting the American way of life have been hallmarks of our Party and our leadership,” concluded Amoore. “That’s what we need from our Party leaders in Washington and that’s exactly what I’ll do if elected in January.”
The RNC will elect its new slate of officers at its January 28, 2008 meeting.
