RNC To Approve Post-2012 Goals, Save Immigration

CHICAGO (AP) — Republicans are ready to adopt sweeping party rule changes aimed at making the work of picking a candidate for president more efficient and less prone to infighting.

Not a moment too soon, too.

As members of the Republican National Committee meet this week in Chicago, several White House hopefuls are spending a few days in the Iowa — a full year and a half ahead of the state’s leadoff caucuses.

Yet for all their success in making the administrative changes called for in the RNC’s post-2012 election autopsy, including imposing strict new penalties on states that violate the party’s nominating schedule, the party’s members of Congress have not yet moved on its only policy recommendation of comprehensive immigration reform.
